On page one of this thread there is a link to his sales site where it definitely says there will only be 1000 copies. Maybe the pre orders were so many he has changed that now, but my order number was over 900 in April so if there are still only 1000 copies there can’t be too many left?


I ordered it yesterday and my no. is 980.


On the 8th of january, they were 120 copy left....

On 30th September the update was that the book was finally in the printing process... here we are a month later, no update on how the printing went and when shipping is likely to occur. I don't want a refund or anything like that, I just want an update on how the printing has gone and when they are likely to ship. I am fully expecting there to be an email soon saying there has been some form of malfunction with the printers, or the books haven't passed quality standards so they are going to throw them all away and start again etc, perhaps even another chapter added!

Got an email from Helder.

Forget this year, maybe mid january to the US… and when to Europe ?

Seriously ?

It has been a long journey, dixit Helder… looks more like A Very Bad Trip.

and what to think of that :
"I promise that with future releases I will not forget this delay and compensate each one of you even further for your patience with it."

Why not compensate NOW ?


First thought : What a joke !

And with the new price : 150$ plus shipping, it would be a bigger benefit for Helder to have refunds. Sorry guys !

Have I been used like a sort of bait?

Difficult no to be paranoid, but above all disapointed

Time to have a walk to calm down

Need time to digest the thing.

Think you won the 'open prediction' award on this one. I'm just reading through the details in his email.

Guys,

I've reread Helder's email a couple of times, and I have to say I'm okay with the explanation he's shared.

In my day job I work at a large company with some of the top experts in their fields, and have been involved in many projects big and small. And I can say that in EVERY project I have seen, there are always unforeseen delays and complications. I can forgive Helder that he's hit some of those as well, and recognize that he's really just one guy with probably a pretty limited 'staff' and budget behind him to help this process along. It feels like he just got a little over his head on some of this. Personally I bought this book on the strength of his past material, and also to some degree to support him as he continues to create and share his material. And I'm still in his corner now.

Hopefully he can hit the Jan date and we can move on to some more positive dialogue about the book.

I'd say give it 4 to 5 days and then follow up. My suspicion is he's probably receiving more feedback about the book this week than in the entire past year combined. So he might not have seen your note yet but will probably get back to you.

Limited budget?! He's taken 1000 x $100 (or thereabouts)... that's not limited funds.

The big question is since this is a book, there’s literally no cost associated out of pocket until the time it goes to the printer, so why collect payment about a year in advance if you don’t have any idea when the book will get printed.

Meanwhile, in the “David Regal New Book: Interpreting Magic” thread...people are happily reporting receiving their copies in a timely manner and with David Regal himself checking in on the thread to respond personally to any questions that may arise. I was one of the buyers who took a chance when the presale window was momentarily opened for Interpreting Magic. The book is absolutely a delight to read and certainly a labor of love for the writer. Perhaps there is a lesson to be learned here, by those in question, on how to do the entire book selling process right...and how to do it well. Thanks Mr. Regal for your gift of magic and for a job well done.
