Because Mark knows his craft and MR1 and MR2 were very good.

He will deliver one day. Not too sure when.

Yes. No matter what. He will deliver. The delays cannot be undone, but he will deliver.
He must deliver to be able to focus on the Equivoque-book next.

Well, I guess if the people who paid are happy with the situation and not bothered about waiting five years and counting, as he releases product after product in the meantime then I suppose all is good!! Who am I to criticize. Best of luck with it!

I suspect few of the MR3 purchasers are happy with the situation and not bothered.

Just pulling your leg. ;-) I don't want this thread to disappear...
Promises are so hard to keep.
How many times have we received a promised deadline now? And how many times has it moved to a later date? I really believed it would arrive this year. But that hope is gone. More frustration has replaced that hope.

I still hope for this year. It looked promising and I cannot see any reasons it wouldn't be possible to keep the promise this year.

Maybe because he spent his time on the things he has just released? Hidden gems was the last one wasn't it? (but there have been countless others) Must have taken time to put together. Also it is an ebook so you get it within 12 hours apparently, not 12 years!!

You paid 5 years ago and you are expecting to get it before the end of the year? I really hope you do, but good luck with that one.

This really is inexcusable and pretty disgraceful, no?

If it doesn't come by the end of the year, hopefully his new years resolution will be to finish the *** thing

Well, let's hope so. Now it is just a matter of hours.

When do you think you will lose faith? After 8 years, 10? Can't believe he's got away with this for so long.

If you look here

http://elsdon.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/men......html?m=1

he says

"Note: For a variety of reasons, this book is very, very, very late, for which I offer my sincerest apologies. One day, I will write another book which will detail the numerous delays, setbacks and disasters encountered during MR3's writing and publication. Even at the very end, there have been further unavoidable delays. Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Thankfully, it will finally, actually, be published on November 17th 2017.
For real."

For real? I bet you all cant wait to pre order the book about the disaster of a book you preordered. What a funny guy!

I remember being really annoyed at having to chase up my order of MR1 and when it came I didn't think it was that good to be honest, I sold it on after reading a couple of times. I don't know how he stretched it to two volumes and can see why he's struggling with 3.

You hear people who self publish say things like people don't understand the difficulties and delays you can encounter, but 5 years of "delays and disasters"? come on??!! If you find it THAT hard then don't do it.

I also hear people say that because of experiences like this they will never be burnt again. This is also a shame for people who are genuine. I know plenty of people who have actually delivered perfectly well when it comes to pre orders.

Maybe he deserves a mention in the worst customer service thread, people there are fuming over waiting 3 months!!

Maybe indeed he does. Is there such a thread for real? I couldn't find it.

I usually don't post anything but this situation is absolutely shameful. You would think there would be some communication from him, but even if there was, it would be nothing but false promises. This is certainly not a way to solidify a loyal customer base. How does one do this when the community is so small? It's incomprehensible.

He mustn't be a very good mentalist. At least not as far as predictions go.

So what is the current prediction?
Will Elsdon release this soon?

Given that he assured us it would be with us by Christmas, I am hopeful that it will be delivered very soon.

"Thankfully, it will finally, actually, be published on November 17th 2017.
For real."

For real!!

Also it says.....

"How to develop your own original material, as well as cherry-pick the very best items from the thousands of books, DVDs, tricks and manuscripts that are already out there."

Sounds a bit like his latest release Hidden Gems?

If this limited release sold out then my prediction is that he was well happy with the ten thousand pounds he wandered off with almost six years ago.

No excuses are good enough, its an absolute disgrace and tantamount to theft in my eyes. How is he still selling stuff? The absolute nerve of releasing so many products in the meantime? Unbelievable!
