    I purchased Ginger GMs Master Method, and i have to give this guy some amazing credits. He speaks in plain English, no messing around! We get the info in with teaspoons so its easy for us to understand. I feel I learned much more from his method than any book so far just because its more convenient and easy to just watch a video which also saves a lot of time. I do recommend this DVD. I will buy the next one as well! Thanks for making my life easier and also I Love the London!
