The mismatch has me questioning if this is a "new" set... definitely not a set from 2009. I returned one set thinking it was a returned copy and received another mismatch of inventory on the second set.
In the neck DVD (2009 DVD/2006 case) the training and video technology was extremely well done; camera on the techniques, indexed well, and has picture inserts that add clarity. If the rest of the DVD's were of the same vintage, technology and quality of training then I would have rated it 5 stars for the DVD portion. Unfortunately, this technology only occurred in the neck DVD.
The other DVD's (2004 - 2007) have less technical and training quality. At times and at times the camera is focused on the back of the instructor's shirt instead of showing the technique. The workbooks have copyright on the cover within the 2009 year, on an inside page there is a statement that the handouts and material is copyright 2003, and the pages have yet a different copyright date.
Each DVD and case (2004 on up) provides a link to download a free PDF course manual to accompany the DVD. The web page resulting from the link, states that the DVD's are coming in the fall; however, it does not specify which year to expect it to be available.
I would like to know if the others received the advertised product or old inventory. The inventory question has been raised on multiple occasions and goes unanswered.
On the plus side the series of techniques are effective and a great start or addition to a practice. On the down side, the product received is not a release from September 10, 2009 as advertised; nor do the links lead to the downloadable course manual as printed on the cover and disk.
Do check out Til's website ([...]) for more detailed information about the DVDs and for Til's schedule of excellent workshops.
