Topie: Impossible Visits

usrmeret I just ordered the book and DVD. Before I did, I checked around for comments (+ / -) about them. I didn't find many, but those that I did find were mostly non-committal. In fact, some even tried to debunk the book. I just hate it when a person tries to discredit something he or she has never researched to any worthwhile degree. I suppose just like a sewer, the smell will always linger. I'm getting carried away now......back to my reason for this post. Can anyone give me their honest opinion about the subject book and DVD.

robday I have the DVD's. While there is no piece of footage or a photo that jumps out and says, "here it is!", there are several situations on the DVD that are very interesting. That one face is pretty good, but I was much more interested in things like the "favorite corn eating spot" and the Vermont ravine project. These are things that seem to show patterns of behavior. The tomato in the tree is pretty impressive, as is the mushroom left in the tree. While not visually stunning in any way, these are things that I feel are exciting because they help our research and push us in new directions.
Also, the fact that Chris was sleeping under the stars is pretty darned impressive. I listened to one of Stan Courtney's recordings of what sounds like a BF trying to open his car door while he was asleep. That's enough for me to want some kind of barrier between me and the outside! Mr. Noel has more guts than I do!

paulp77 If you like pictures of brush and shadows, stumps etc you'll like it. If you want to see any real animals, or anything of subtance its probably not for you.
