It'll probably be in January if I can make the print deadline.

On first read, including ~30 pages of line by line, move by move checking, it's incredibly detailed, full of new ideas and dense explanation. Were this a QC book, it'd easily be two volumes.

The biggest problem is layout. There are no indications in the header or footer as to chapter or variation, and the text uses the old nested alphabetical style of presentation. It can get hard to remember where you are, or where the line you're interested in starts.

Just got my paper review copy from the publisher.

Excellent news! will you be reviewing it for your next column? Is there a rule of thumb on how soon after review copies are recieved that books get published (if not already?)

Is there some update regarding the publication date ? My amazon order still mentions that it should be delivered roundabout this weekend (23/24th of november) but it was not shipped yet according to amazon.. Is it true that it will be delayed ? Sad


Like I said, I tend not to trust Amazon's publication predictions...


More often than not they are correct, and are worth following as a guide. However, they rely on publishers to supply them with the products and the correct dates of publication, so they are not always going to be right 100%

My order is showing as arriving 10 Dec 2019 - 16 Jan 2020.

Amazon shipping can be quite fast so you might get an update today or tomorrow confirming it's posting.

At the bottom of the page, there is a telephone number !

Fight 1.d4 with the Tarrasch! A Complete Black Repertoire vs. 1.d4


Call long-distance to find out when the book shall be published, because they ignored my e-mails?

Certainly some better customer service would be the solution here.

Or they could just put the projected publication date on the book webpage.

In any case, after about a month I still have no reply to my e-mail about when this book is actually published at Russell Enterprises publishing house.

A few months ago I had e-mailed them about another book and no reply, so I expect that they just ignored my e-mails.
