Don't worry, Richard is hard at work on a new book on how to remove the DVDs from their sleeves. This time nothing has been held back.

Actually, whether or not I remove the DVDs is an out. Sometimes I do. Sometimes I do something entirely different.

Nothing has been held back in the Berglas book, either.

Mr. Berglas arrived today in Santa Clara, CA & scared the crap out of me when he jumped out of the back of the book. (I think he wanted the funky eyewear that I was trying on after finding them in the book.)

I'm surprised to hear about all the copies arriving in California, but fewer in the eastern part of the country. The mystery of the USPS mail ...

Just a quick request. Could any UK magicians drop a note on the forum when the book arrives in the UK? I can never work out how long these things take to arrive over here...

Thanks!

Nice request Joe, and can people do the same for France? I assume it will arrive at the same time in both countries, but just in case... :)

Still hasn't arrived. This book better be good. When I open it up a hand better pop out and payoff my mortgage. I've been waiting for this book way too long now.

Damn you all, damn you. Still no Berglas sightings in Northern California. Or at least not in Redwood City.

Damn you!

I have to wait for another two or three weeks for the deluxe edition, and I'm not complaining. You should be grateful that Richard was willing to spend the time and effort to write the book, and that Mr. Berglas was willing to part with the information. Surely, you don't believe that they did it for the money. If you want to hear about a wait, when July arrives this year, I will have waited four YEARS for the Martin Gardner book from Todd Karr, and you won't see me complaining about it, either. Some things are worth waiting for.You should kiss the feet of Berglas and Kaufman for making it possible for you to have this information at such a bargain price. You, obviously, have too little appreciation for what you will be receiving. You could have gone to the IMX and received the book in person and had it over a week ago.

Thank you. I feel better now.

While I agree with Don, although I'm not too sure about the feet kissing part (Richard, are your tootsies in a kissable state?), I can appreciate that some of those who pre-ordered may feel that they should have received their copy before the book was released for general sale at the IMX.
There were probably also a few frustrated 'pre-ordering' attendees at the IMX who saw the book for sale and experienced a 'so near and yet so far' moment.

Me? I'm awaiting both my regular and deluxe editions with much anticipation....

Cheers

Arrived in all its glory here in South Jersey today! Looking at it I believe we all should shout out a big THANKS to Richard and David for such a work.

I beleive they were extremely generous in this release.

Three professional DVD's, 3D artwork and oh the secrets to be revealed!

Thanks Richard and David!!!

Still no luck in Dayton, OH. On the bright side, it is a beautiful weekend and I can devote the extra time to catching up on some yard and house work.

It arrived today in Chattanooga. I watched my postman try to shove the book into the mailbox. Of course it didn't fit.

Arrived here in sunny Southern California. It was overcast and cloudy all this morning, but when the mail arrived, the clouds parted and the sun burst forth its rays. The Berglas Effect I suppose.

Just arrived here in El Dorado Hills (near Sacramento)--not to far from Roseville---but evidently on the early delivery route!

Now how do I remove the DVD's without screwing up the book? Any ideas?
