I'm happy to announce that our latest book, Wii Fitness for Dummies, available soon from booksellers everywhere, is listed as being in stock on Amazon.com starting February 8, 2010. Wii Fitness for Dummies focuses on three of the top Wii fitness programs, Wii Fit Plus, EA Sports Active: Personal Trainer, and Jillian Michaels Fitness Utimatum 2010, as well as additional coverage of the entire Wii fitness phenomena. You can use Amazon's nifty Look Inside feature to take a look at a low resolution version of a sampling of the book's contents (or see PDF excerpts here), and check out the Cheat Sheet for the book on Dummies.com. We have an official book page up on Armchair Arcade, where we'll soon be posting weekly bonus content that didn't fit in the book, as well as providing links to all mentioned above and more, including a Table of Contents (TOC) and the official Facebook discussion page. Finally, since March is Dummies Month at booksellers everywhere, we're happy to announce that Wii Fitness for Dummies is one of the featured publications in that promotion. As always, feel free to ask any questions, as both Christina and I will be happy to help. More news to follow on a regular basis, so stayed tuned!

Minor differences, yes

Hey Bill, congratulations. A book is a lot of work for little reward financially at least. I wonder what the differences for Canada would be. Official government documents use metric but informally everyone still uses feet & inches and pounds to measure themselves.

Our technical reviewer, Didi Cardoso, of Gamer's Intuition, is based in Canada. She noted minor differences in some of the measurements as you say in each of the three major games covered, but nothing that would really affect usage of the book in other territories. Exercise names vary a bit in Europe as well on occasion, but again, nothing really major. They're the same exact setups in all territories otherwise, and I don't recall us doing any calculations in the book that would clash with the metric system or anything else.
