A new category: Deep Capture the Book

48 sec read

As many of you already know, I’m currently writing a book dedicated to a much deeper examination of the subjects addressed in this blog.

As always, I’m going to great lengths to ensure that every assertion in the book is defensible. However, because finance is not my primary (nor secondary, nor tertiary) vocation, I frequently rely on more experienced associates when it comes to testing the integrity of hypotheses formed by observation of data and events.

Recently, it occurred to me that, when it comes to the development of these theories, I ought to make better use of the expertise of the large and growing following we’ve been fortunate to build up here at deepcapture.com. Thus, starting later today, you’ll find the occasional post under the category “Deep Capture Book”, where I will present ideas being considered for the book, which could benefit from input by experts.

Am I overstating my case, or possibly understating it?

Is there another explanation?

What additional insights might strengthen my point?

These are all things that I’m hoping you folks will volunteer, via each post’s comment section.

Of course, if you should prefer to make your comment to me directly, you may do so via email: jbagley@deepcapture.com

As I said, look for the first of these posts in the next few hours.
