Good luck getting a reply from them. Maybe they'll catch word and reply but I have found their customer service to be terrible. I was told by the end of August so a week or so yet.

Bruce sent me that:
There was a problem with the cover for UNREAL and my publisher insisted the printer correct the problem, which involved having a new die made.
Obviously, this has delayed the shipping dates for the books.

I've been told there's a firm shipping date and that the books should be ready for shipping around the end of August. Although I can't promise it as yet, I have confidence this info will prove correct.

Yes, great news! Bruce's writings are among those I was directed to when I first became serious about mentalism and remain favorites.

As soon as folks have Unreal and Taboo in hand we'll need to start another thread for Taboo. The description of the performance is a mind boggling idea thematically let alone how it can possibly be accomplished in the manner described given the plot. Knowing Bruce, I suspect the answers to be sublime.

I love the following quotes:

Michael Weber - "I believe two things about Taboo to be true: 1) Bruce has crafted a routine which is both practical and powerful, and 2) 99.9% of the mentalists I have seen don't have the balls to present it the way it deserves to be performed."

Jon Stetson - "Taboo is Too Good. It's Bruce's greatest creation to date! At $100.00, this masterpiece is way underpriced. For me, it is worth thousands - I wish I could keep this one for myself. Thank goodness Bruce uses his power for good!
PS. For anyone wondering the difference between Mentalism and Mental Magic, buy Taboo and find out.

Hi All,

Please accept my apologies for what is, even in my own estimation, "terrible customer service." Squash Publishing is a one-man operation, as are all magic publishing business, and in this case, as I am that one man, I want to personally apologize for not getting back to those customers who tried to contact me regarding the release of the new Bernstein book. Contact information on our website is available, but apparently not all emails are getting through to us - had emails been received, they would have been answered within 24 hours, as is our general policy. Again, please accept my apologies for the oversight. In the future, feel free to call us. The phone number is posted on our website.

Thanks, too, for all of your support and the many orders for Bruce's book. I spent Saturday and Sunday of last weekend packing up orders; everything was shipped on Monday and books should begin arriving on doorsteps post-haste, if they have not done so already. Both Bruce and I are proud of how the book turned out, both in content and form. There were several delays from the printer that held us up, but the wait was worth it. We think those that purchase a copy will agree wholeheartedly.

Thanks again for your support.

Best Regards,

Gabe Fajuri

Thanks for letting us know Gabe, I'm sure you were swamped with orderes from this book and being only one man, I could see how time consuming this would be.

All the best,

Darren

Jheff has a review at his Marketplace of the Mind site. You can read the details there, but this is how he ended his review...

Bruce is a true renaissance man; what is not widely known about him is that he is also an accomplished composer and musician.

I received this a couple days ago and am working my way through it. My thoughts so far. An amazing book. Really high quality thinking and work. I've already tried out a couple of effects from the book with great responses. This book could sell for twice the price and be a bargain. I still have 2/3 of the book to go but would have been happy with what I have read in just the first 1/3. Get this.

Funny, In his book, Bruce talk about people call him to know how an effect works to do it the next day during a gigs.

Bruce has always been a great thinker, and is also one heck of a nice guy!

Purchased from a brick-and-mortar store yesterday. It wasn't a hard decision. I can do today for less than $1 a drawing duplication I once saw a master perform on TV. I can read minds with no need of written info from participants. That's because I already read how to do those effects from Bernstein's spiral bound books. Those are just the first TWO effects in the new hardback.
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

Mike and I were just talking about this book. Like him, I have just purchased a copy myself. Although I am just now ordering this, this has been on a must-buy list. Without question, Bruce is one of the finest creators of modern times. This is the definition of no-brainer.

Bruce, if your lurking about, I just wanted to say a hearty "thank you" for putting so much work into one book. I can't wait to read what you've got in store for us.

Best Regards,

Sean
