Hang in there guys - over 400 sent to date - the pile has deceased dramatically and with a bit of luck we should have cleared by Monday 14th. Your patience really is appreciated it's just there were rather more pre-orders than we thought, good for the coffers but lousy on the packing team!!!

Thought this was produced by the Trust?................ therefore 100% less production cost I presume?

Great book, good quality but a shame the Post office somehow managed to get one part of packaging soaking wet  :evil: (rest was bone dry) and damaged the back cover and some of the pages. Luckily careful drying has prevented too much permanent damage :(

vulcanzero1 - Certainly worth making a claim, details of how below. You'll need to have kept the packaging in case they ask to inspect it (but in my experience generally they don't)

My copy came yesterday. Only had time for a quick scan through, but it looks a wonderful book. Well worth the money!

All pre-orders have been sent along with those upto and including orders placed by 13.00 Monday 14th March 2011 - it was quite a task at a rough calculation it comes to more than 650 copies sent out -

Don't worry if you haven't ordered yet we still have some left so you will not get left out

We can rush you a copy !

Just to add to the thanks for the excellent efforts of Bob and the team. Got mine yesterday and only ordered on the 6th. Well done.
