You have to register on their site. You can have a little fun with the Mr., Mrs., Dr. part -- you can type whatever text you want. I chose "Dictator-for-Life," a la Calvin & Hobbes. It was fun.

Anyway, once you register you get an email. You click the link and log in. If it doesn't work the first time (it didn't for me) you just try again, clicking the link in your email. Once you've logged in (and you "bought" the report before you created your account) the report will be in your shopping cart. You don't have to enter any billing information.

Is there an example of what is contained in their report if I go to their site?
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Hey all I just wanted to let you know I finished reading this and forgot to reply. I did like it, it is interesting with some new thought on bp, new to me anyway. I didn't agree with all of it but I definitely think it is worth reading, and for me it gave some insight into other ways I can help explain to other what is going on. Part of it talk about how meds arn't necessary for treatment which I am not thinking is accurate but hey to each there own, and if you want to look into research that supports treatment without meds I would read here. It also discusses treatment with meds too though. Interesting to say the least. Ok take care all!

The webpage said, I think, that they're only giving it away for July. But they may keep it up. Who knows.
