  • Do you need TTOTC Book

    Wondering where others are in their view of the book and its importance with solving the poem - do we need the book, The Thrill of the Chase (TTOTC)?

    I did not answer poll as it was too limited.
    My answer is that it is not necessary to purchase TTOTC as Forrest put the most important hints for free on his website and they have been there since the beginning .

      I edited the poll - I'd forgotten about the PDF on Fenn's website!

          Only the "Gold and more" chapter in the TTOTC book, and the safety instructions by FF. Absolutely nothing more. And maps, of course!

            TTOTC not necessary for solution; necessary for confidence in it.

              Technically, you don't need the book, but it helps, along with everything else.

                I think you have to know a little about the poem's author or you won't know how to apply the solve. I think that's how the nope comment works.

                  I believe you hit the bull's eye. This is where the subtle hints in the book are. They are not in the selection of every 14th letter to spell the sound of turning The White Album backwards or in a pareidolic image of a fish in a truck fender. The hints are in getting to know who the writer of the poem is. Understand him and you will understand his poem. It's like following Falken's Maze.

                    Interesting answer, Zap, given some of your previous comments. I don't have the book, but have read the extracts published online. Nothing in them have helped me with clue solving, but I found them helpful to gain a clearer background image - as others have mentioned. I do recall finding an interesting typo on FF's website. . .

                      everyone should just use the poem its the map to a disappointing vacation. I remember my favorite shirt. I remember my parents ripping it off my back when they beat me.

                        The poem delivers solutions, many false, one correct. TTotC delivers the big picture to find out about the one that is correct!

                          Guarantee you Forrest has never mentioned so much as the county-sized area in print or otherwise. He gives the surroundings, probably dozens of visuals.

                            5-Leaf: are you sure about that?

                              That explains some things.
