Wii Fitness for Dummies (2010) - Table of Contents

Wii Fitness for Dummies (2010), by Christina and Bill Loguidice, through Wiley.

We just finished primary author review on the book, so it's now considered at 100%, though there are still a few minor things to do. Since it's at that point, I'm now able to release what should be the final Table of Contents. Check it out here: http://www.armchairarcade.com/neo/node/3046 . As always, any questions, ask away. We're still looking at a February/March 2010 release.

Wii Fitness for Dummies, available from retailers worldwide, is THE book on the Nintendo Wii fitness revolution. Part 1 covers Nintendo's Wii Fit Plus, Part 2 covers EA Sports Active: Personal Trainer from Electronic Arts, and Part 3 covers Majesco's Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010. There are two parts of ten at the back of book, as well, which cover ten Wii fitness accessories, and ten other Wii fitness games, respectively. You'll not only get to know all of the games inside and out, but also learn proper exercise form, theory and methodology to maximize your fitness experience, all in the inimitable friendly and approachable for Dummies style.

Wii Fit Plus Review by WiiFitNizzle

I thought you guys might get a kick out of my students' latest YouTube video. These guys and gals are having such a blast in my English 403/503 class (Computers & English), and I'll be damned if they aren't making videos that are just as good if not better than most anything else on Youtube. Check it out, and please give them a comment or two if you like what you see.

Wii Fit is the Shizznit

I thought you guys might get a kick out of one of the projects my students are working on this semester: Wii Fit is the Shizznit. I draw your attention to this video:

Now tell me you how much you'd like to be in this class! :P They've also made a podcast.

Why not make a few comments on their channel or join their ning site? It's a great group.

Here's another of the student projects:

Freeware Chronicles
Here's their video and podcast.

One more: Anatomy of a Comic. Great stuff.

A minor dissapointment, but...

Well, with Nintendo's surprise announcement of Wii Fit Plus, the book I was working on with my wife, Wii Fit For Dummies is now dead. It's not all bad news though, as in its place will be Wii Fit Plus for Dummies. What's really disappointing, though, is that we were more or less on track to finish Wii Fit for Dummies by the end of this month for a November 2009 release. It was also a project that early on I wasn't really "feeling", but was developing into something special. It was of course already special for a "Dummies" brand book because of its full color nature, but I really liked some of the research we uncovered and the tremendous value we were adding that was not necessarily in your typical "Dummies" book. Since Wii Fit Plus will be replacing regular Wii Fit sometime this fall worldwide, the decision was made instead to release an entirely different book, perhaps as early as January 2009. Hopefully we'll be able to leverage a lot of the hard work we put into the other book, but it's probably a long shot to think there will be large amounts of overlap because it's looking to be a pretty significant update, more of a 2.0 than a 1.5. The biggest downside though is that there's no chance of us getting a pre-release version of Wii Fit Plus, so it will be a mad dash to write the book as soon as the product is released to the public. No one ever said writing books in your spare time was going to be easy!
