It would appear cancelled....not just postponed. But here is the email I got from Jacob; decide for yourself.

"Dear Wallace,

The Berlin Wall has been cancelled. The author got ill.

Jacob."


Let's hope he'll recover soon.

Hi!
The book was cancelled forever or just a few months? I saw in Amazon that the book will appear in april.  Sad
  

It has been said that chess players are good at two things, Chess and Excuses.  It has also been said that Chess is where all excuses fail! In order to win you must dare to fail!

For all of you who were looking forward to Jacob Aagaard's "Berlin Wall" scheduled for this spring, I've got some bad news.  I got an email today from Jacob that the book has been cancelled.

Alas.  Undecided
