Hey gerry it's the saying proper terminology promotes clear communication, but they have to be willing to learn the terminology first. Probably worked out for the best, I think your book is perfect. My mantra is : ten feet higher, wow I made it, ten feet higher wow my hearts still working etc. until I get to where I want to be. I like the rock climbing one better. I think it is the heights , limb walks, swings basically everything about climbing that makes me addicted to climbing and getting that sudden rush when something unexpected happens but having dependable gear and trusting it is a huge bonus. Like Cory said my biggest worry is the tie in point and the tree itself in most cases, but I guess that's all part of it.
