AMB,

It de-masted off of the Cape, and it is now relying on its paddles...

Book now here. At last!

Ken, an impressive book, and so much easier to read than the '69 original.

Well worth the wait (and cost).

AMB,

You obviously have the right connections, still nothing arrived on the home front...

Maybe it will be here for the anniversary on 4th July? - Just wishful thinking.

Ken tells me that he believes 'stock is en route'. Watch this space.

Alan,

I have been watching this space for almost six months since the book was bought for me.

I feel the U.K. distributor jumped the gun by asked for immediate payment, rather than defer it until the book was available.

John,
I would have thought in your job that you wouldn't pay until you see the whites of the pages.

Alan,

I didn't buy the book myself, it was purchased as a present from my sons. They were forced to use the only option available to U.K. customers.

The publishers don't even despatch orders overseas.

Picked up the book this morning after a long wait !

A bit pricey but the footpath of life is rather short and there is nothing
wrong in picking a few flowers along the way.

Ken, if you are listening, the book is a superb gem. Many thanks.

Robert

Phew - I'm pleased (and relieved) that you like the book, Robert.
Regards, Ken
