New "Match Game" book on the way...
« on: February 14, 2017, 02:09:46 PM »
A man named A. Ashley Hoff is releasing a book called Match Game 101. He actually wrote it in 2003 and couldn't find a publisher, but as a result of the new ABC version, there's revived interest in it. Also worth noting is that because he wrote it in 2003, he interviewed a lot of people who have left us since that time (Ira Skutch, for example), so it should be an interesting read. Here's the official Facebook page if you're interested.

Any idea whether the book has been revised to include Alec's version?

To answer that question, the author posted this last summer on the book's Facebook page:

I hope it’s OK that this is being bumped, but the book is finally being published.
