Would it be possible to have the books themselves at the conference?  I'd pick one up there.


They should *hopefully* be in the local Waterstones by then!!

Has there been a problem with the book? I ordered a copy from Amazon, got an email saying there'd be a slight delay, then one saying a longer delay and now Amazon says "We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We'll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date".

Should I try to get it from somewhere else?  ???

Chris - you say that the book is available as a "limited edition which includes a few extras including post cards, a book mark and a colour poster". I assume that Amazon isn't offering them. How much are the limited editions and how do I go about getting one?

Is there a way to order it via here so credit goes to the QE2 story..?
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

This is the jacket cover of the special edition version of the book.
It's available in two versions - standard edition and limited edition which includes a few extras including post cards, a book mark and a colour poster.



I had ordered form Amazon what I thought was the limited edition (with the few extras), but I now see that I have ordered a Special Edition and there is not an option for the limited edition. 

Chris can you confirm what is the standard edition,  the limited edition and the special edition?

So sorry Malcolm and Lynda in my haste I typed limited edition rather than special edition.


There are just the two versions. Standard edition and special edition.


There's nothing we have been told that would explain why there would be a delay.

But how do we tell which we've ordered? Amazon is charging £25.00 at the moment; is that the price for the standard edition?

I've just looked at Amazon and they are also offering one at £40.00. Is that the special edition?

Dear Members,

I have added links to both versions of Chris's new book to our shop.  If you purchase through this way, it will cost you the same, but the forum will get a very small percentage each time too.

I'm afraid It is too complicated for me to also have links for other Amazon regions.

Hi Malcolm,


The £25 is the standard ed. and the £40 is the special ed.

I am still awaiting the Special Edition of the book, Amazon have sent a revised delivery of the book to be with them between 2 to 6 September, which is a week beyond the original time.   Not sure what the problem is with the publishers release date not being on schedule.

I've got mine already! I thought Amazon got it out really quickly. It arrived whilst we were away, Amazon put it through our letterbox and it was waiting when we got home. (Although I've to admit that I've been so busy since our return that I haven't even removed the plastic cover  :-[)

Yesterday I got a message to say the Special Edition would be delivered on 6 September.  Lesson to be learned, not to pre-order from Amazon!
