RE: Simplify
True. Maybe what a poem purist is really trying to say is they are trying to solve the poem only using the poem after having learned everything they could from the books.

I hope everyone listens to & believes ... YOU. Please keep every searcher convinced that they ONLY need the poem. That will eliminate the competition for me. Go ahead, filmguy ... knock 'em down like ducks in a shooting gallery!

Please forgive me if I sound mean or sarcastic. That is NOT my intent. I believe with all my soul that TTOTC is necessary for solving the poem. Get the book, read the book, analyze the aberrations. It's the ONLY way!

B from WV,

I couldn't agree more. In order to get to the spot where he hid the TC, we NEED the book in addition to the poem. I believe the book explains an offset that we need once we solve it. That offset isn't available in the poem. Sure, we can solve it but we won't know EXACTLY where to go without that offset.
Even after writing Forrest this afternoon, I still believe we need both.

Mr. Fenn,
This is not a question of a hint. Rather a question of confirmation of a statement.
Personally, I believe the book is needed to solve the puzzle. However, on Chase Chat, someone said,
"I have asked Fenn in the past if, since the poem is on the internet, do you need the book at all to solve it.
He said no, you won't need the book if you already have the poem."
My question is whether or not you actually said that statement.
I'm not asking if it's true, just whether or not you actually said that.
Answer if you will.
Thank you for your time.
Sincerely,

He responded:
Yes, I said that, but the book helps. f

I JP, I know not directed to me, but thought i would comment.

First the blogs are for entertainment.

There are poem purist and those who analyze everything, most are in between.

What fenn said in your email is what he said to the masses. The book helps.

Which is what I believe he does, consistent with all searchers when it comes to the chase and nothing secret in messages privately (IMO) as it relates to the Chase. Thank you for continuing to confirm that.

I read the book in its entirety just once. Then I just followed where he once was. Then I seen it my own mind.

Or:

THE END I SEVER, DRAWING NIGH

Or something else entirely, like the epilogue in his memoir. You’re turning those pages left.

JP, thank you for double checking and following up.
The book helps I agree, but I don't see anywhere in that statement where you "NEED" the book.

So let's take what Fenn has said.
- You don't need any specialty knowledge
- The book only helps
- All you need is the poem, the book, and a good map (sounds to me that a good map is much more important than the book)

I don’t believe the book is much less important than a good map.

Simplify...
A mathematical term...

Or maybe, when the poem says look quickly down, we do just that...at the compass in our hand!
