Second Printing - Available 3/2/2020

We have finally completed the fulfillment of 1000 two-volume sets. Thanks again to everyone.

Due to the ongoing interest, a first edition - second printing, will go on sale starting on Monday, March 2rd, at 10:00 PST. Like the first editions, these are pre-ordered books that will ship to buyers near the end of the month, a timeline that I’m trying to expedite.

Only two printing typos have been corrected along with one error in the second printing. The plan is to correct all errors and grammatical issues in a Second Edition—if warranted. Many books are just reaching their destination, so it’s difficult to build a complete erratum until the books have been in the hands of readers for a few weeks. An Erratum will be added soon to the website, so please check it before emailing any form of error.

Second-printing orders will not include a signed card with the same back design as those used in the photographs; these cards were thank-you cards for the first 1000 buyers.

Also, I’m happy to continue signing/inscribing any books at the buyers’ request. This option was apparently confusing to many. In the dozen or so cases where a buyer did not receive a requested signature/inscription, there was no record of the request in our system (or via email), and we often sent the internal record to the buyer to prove our position—there was only one case where the requested inscription was misinterpreted as a personal message. So, please be careful during checkout if you are requesting signatures or inscriptions. A text field titled ‘Signed and Inscribed Requests’ can be found on the checkout page. Please ensure that your message is present before pressing the ‘Check Out’ button.


  • My wife ordered the books for me. I didn’t know they could be signed. Is it still possible? If not it’s my fault.I just said I wanted the books. Looking forward to them. Be safe and healthy.

  • For me I would prefer a delay in postage since in France everything is more or less blocked for at least one month, and I don’t want the parcel to be lost during the travel.

  • Is there a date when you expect to ship the second printing to those who purchased?

  • Will COVID-19 be causing a delay in printing/shipping? There’s been no update to the blog since the first of the month, and with so much going on, I doubt anyone would mind waiting longer. I do think that it’d be nice to have an official response about what’s currently happening, either way though. Thank you for your time, and I hope everyone is well.

  • Any news on when the second printing will be shipped please?
