A note from Gabe:
Nov 1, 2013
What an extraordinary journey this has been.
This book began in 2011 as a Master’s Thesis, eventually turned into a book proposal and sold to Crown/Random House in June of 2012, was thrown away entirely and rewritten from scratch in 2012/2013, finished in June 2013 and edited in the following few months. In the process, I’ve completely rethought my approach to language learning, I’ve fallen in love with the art and craft of writing and storytelling and I’ve worked harder than I’ve ever thought possible. This book is me in written form. It’s also a damned good book about language learning, thank you very much.
It will be released on August 5, 2014. Until then, I’m aiming to release early excerpts to my Kickstarter backers, collecting early blurbs and reviews, and making this website as comprehensive and awesome as I possibly can, so that the moment someone reads my book, they have all the tools they need to start learning a language immediately.

A year and a half has passed since my book came out, and life has changed quite a bit. My '6 Month' Kickstarter has turned into a 3 year, life-consuming project. I've stopped singing professionally, to better focus on developing language learning tools. I've done countless interviews and podcasts, answered thousands of emails, approved translations of the book, given talks in the Netherlands...all in all, it's been quite the ride, and I'm so, so happy with how this is all turning out.
Thank you to all of my readers. Your passion for learning languages fuels my own, and your feedback helps me create better tools that we can all use together. We have a lot of exciting things planned over the next couple of years, and I'm really looking forward to announcing them. Until then, I wish you all the best on each of your language learning endeavors.
