This is a hard update to write, and I have been putting it off. I’ve known for several days that my announcement of an August 28th release date was premature, and I am actually going to have to wait longer. I don’t mind for myself, but I have dreaded telling all of you that rather than a very near release date within this month, I am going to have to change that date to one several weeks in the future. In fact, I’m going to set a tentative date of October 25th.
I have been humbled and gratified by many of you have written to tell me how much you are looking forward to reading the book. I hate having to say that we are going to have to wait still longer, but we are, indeed, going to have to wait. The book is written and will be there to read. I apologize for having to backtrack now. The frenzy to finish the editing can now be done at leisure, and I will spare a little time to think about what I can offer to make up for the wait.
In the meantime, we have to wait together, but I am looking forward to the not-too-distant future when I will be able to share this work, the cumulative study of 20 years distilled into twelve readable chapters, with you all. Thank you for your patience, and I add again that I am more chagrined than I can say that I have to change the date.
