That was obviously a tongue-in-cheek joke as it would be an infinite mystery if it was going to be delayed forever by new reasons.

The story of the book would become greater than the book, and the greedy, longing consumers would finally learn a lesson and write their own stories. I don't know. I just find the whole situation bizarre and intriguing. Don't you?


I agree completely, and sorry I didn`t understand the joke Smile

I find this totally bizarre and a lesson learned. This is also a great example of awful customer service. I wonder if there is some legal action we can do? In my eyes this is stealing. I paid 100 pound, and it seams like he has no intention writing this book.

I personally think there is a book. It has been written. Rewritten. Then after a while it became a dormant project with no real incentive for finishing it. Then it got renewed focus, more rewriting and then it fell a sleep again.

Now it has reached a critical point where I think he wants to start to focus on the next real book (the one on Equivoque, which probably will be great). So now we are hopefully on the finishing lap, or at least the finishing heat. I am not that good with motor sport analogies.

I hope you are right Smile

Anyone received anything yet? Because I haven't.

Not sure whether to be disappointed or not as I was expecting to be let down again. I've lost count of how many times he's reassured me that the thing will be sent and then not sent it.

I haven't. I was promised the ebook version on the first of October. No ebook, no physical copy.

Well, it looks like we're going to have to keep on waiting because the last message I got from him said that he had zero committments till the 30th and so he'd get the book out early last week. And it's now the 30th.

Wish he'd stop making these false promises.

I keep my fingers crossed. This must be the home stretch.

I'm tempted to wager that it will not. I am tempted to offer Mark a bet just so he will pull his finger out and deliver the thing, but then I don't want to pay him to deliver something that he said he would deliver years ago.

Will it be worth the five year wait? Is any book worth such a long wait? Probably not ...

I've just looked at his blog. He released another product on the 5th of November while promising to deliver on the 15th of October and then, when letting everyone down again, later in the month. MR3 customers are clearly low on his priority list.

Never pre-order from this person.

A friend of mine claims that he has got a mail where Mark claims that the final version of the manuscript was sent to the printer like in mid October.
For the printed copy to be delivered in early November. That should be kind of exciting, shouldn't it?

He said a while ago that the pdf's were ready to be sent. He had to manually code them to prevent piracy. How long does it take to add an space on on page per customer? Even if it takes 5 whole minutes for one, the whole process would take less than 9hrs.

Mark Elsdon says a lot of things. I have lost confidence in him.

Still nothing ... The deadline has been pushed back yet again, as predicted.

So what is the current prognosis, anyone? I live in China right now, so maybe that is why I don't get any emails.

Well, based on his form over the last five years, we will not be receiving it by x-mas as he has stated, and he will of course prioritise the release of multiple further products on his blog. In fact, it looks like he has got something lined up to release on his blog tomorrow.

I would be delighted for Mark to prove me wrong, but ... plus ca change.

So people paid for this FIVE years ago and still hold out hope of getting it? Laughable. I think preorder is the wrong word, I think in this case we can safely change it to theft. I would be fuming. What a disgrace. Why do people still buy anything from him?
