Bookforum update

by on August 3, 2007 at 2:48 pm in Books | Permalink

You may recall that we are having the first MarginalRevolution BookForum on Greg Clark’s A Farewell to Alms: A Brief Economic History of the World.  Here is my previous post on the book and how the forum will work.  It’s a great book and I recommend it highly.

Orders from loyal MR readers have been very strong, and many (all?) of you are receiving emails from about publication delays for the book.  The publisher assures me that they are working hard to fill all orders in a timely fashion and the final delay is likely to be a slight one rather than a long one into October.  Early September is looking like the time we will start discussing the book.  But I’ll keep you posted as we hear more…

I ordered mine late last week and Amazon says it will ship soon, and I should get it between the 13th and 15th. I ordered with Tylers book and it already shipped.

I ordered mine about 2 weeks ago and it says I will receive the book in mid October, so hopefully it will be significantly sooner than that.

Or you have moderately broad interests.

Mid-October for some of you?

Hmm… I wonder if I could turn a profit by selling my copy on eBay. 🙂 It’s not like I’m likely to get around to reading it before mid-October (sorry, Tyler) anyway…

It’s not unusual for to estimate a very conservative delivery date following the principal of always under promising and over delivering.

As soon as they get books delivered from the publisher the delivery date quickly moves up. Don’t cancel your order. Be patient and it will show up like magic.
