I´ve the dvd, so probably Bologan just uses his notes to write a book en passent?!
When I listened to his dvd, I felt like an master student, who listened to a bachelor lecture. 98 Percent was known, but a few lines/remarks were still useful.

It´s strange, I´ve Avrukh, Wojo´s weapon, Bologan´s dvd, Marin´s dvd about the catalan, but I can´t assure, that I won´t buy bologan´s book, just to get two percent of extra knowledge. Probably some kind of addiction or passion?!
  

The older, the better - over 2200 and still rising.

I have the book.
Respectfully, I disagree with dre.
Bologan is a strong player (usually around 2700), and he has proven a thorough, capable author.
I confess I don't know much about the Catalan, nothing beyond any FM's general knowledge.
But the book is easy to follow, has clear explanations, looks to have sufficient detail for anyone here (sorry if any 2750+s are reading).
And 2 years since Avrukh.
I humbly opine that Bologan is usually worth reading.

It is now released. But after Boris Avrukhs book on Catalan I feel this book is a bit superfluous.

I found a website (overstock.com) that lists it as being expected to be released in October 2012.

According to Amazon, New in Chess are publishing a book by Bologan called "The Powerful Catalan: A Complete Repertoire for White". I can't see anything about this on the New in Chess site. I wonder how much overlap there will be with Bologan's recent DVD.
