Going to buy it tonight at Bol.com for 25 euro's. Have a gift card of 10 euro's and a coupon of 2,50 euro discount which makes it a total of 12,50 euro. Really need to have this book, read only good things about it.

This is the first book i bought after i got back into lego again after i stopped playing in my teenage year. This is a good starting guide book though not very comprehensive.  You guys should stsrt planning for volume 2 and maybe focus on year by year. Not to nitpick but there were quite a few typo errors throughout the book.

Come on - That's not nice.

You say "Not to nitpick", yet that is about all that your post is doing.

Take most of your issues up with the publishing company.  At a certain point it is out of hands.  I don't know how big you think a book should be but there is a lot of cost that goes in to these things.  They actually added 20+ pages from the original.  Ed focused on key sets from many different themes.  Trying to do an all exclusive on everything is a monumental task and extremely costly.  You also need to realize that when we hand in the material, months go by for production, etc.

Thanks for your critique on my grammar and spelling.  There's an old saying here in 'Merica...People in glass houses shouldn't walk around naked.

It's up to the book publisher.  Honestly, writing the books was fun and great experience, but it was also way too time consuming and paid very little money.
