Original Articles

Announcement of Ebooks compilation of Articles


The following articles have been switched to password protect on the Sportivnypress website because they are now available in ebook format; videos still inclusive. They can be found on the following platforms: Amazon Royalty, Nook Royalty, Itunes Royalty, Kobo Royalty, Google Play Royalty.

I will continue to write new articles which will appear on this site as usual. But over time some of those will be converted to ebook format as well. I am considering print on demand services as well but the video features will be lost. The videos serve to enhance the concepts presented in the articles.
