Well... lucky you getting it all done within a few days... after 4 WEEKS (!) of waiting, empty promises, ZERO update and no communication I am quite fed up with such incompetence on their part. If this is the way they intend to do business, I guess they won't stay here for long.

Have you checked your spam folder recently?



Yes. Nothing there. Plus if they had shipped it as promised it would have arrived 9-10 days ago already.

One- I don't think anyone here expects the same communication and delivery service as Amazon. Those of us who did order are concerned about the lack of communication from this company after a good couple of weeks from when they indicated they would be shipping. No confirmation email, no response to inquiries.

Two- The 3 emails I did receive from them have all gone to my Inbox. I scan junk daily and didn't see anything there either. I'm sure the other folks here who are also voicing their concern have also done the same.

As I mentioned earlier, I'm fine with waiting until Augus but if I get no response or update, I think it's reasonable to look at refund options.

Good advice! I'm currently reading 3 books already so I can wait a bit anyway.

Maybe they’ve dropped through your doors already but you can’t see them against the background of your doormats.

I think I will wait for Jeff Bond’s 2 volume biography on Goldsmith.
I'll get both...

Because writing DP each time there's a double post is annoying. So to liven it up, here's someone who's starred in two Goldsmith-scored movies.

Received my confirmation email this morning. Unfortunately, they misspelled my last name and postal code.. Hopefully, it makes it to my house despite the incorrect postal code.. I responded to their email. Hoping they catch it before it's mailed.

My book turned up today. The noise of it landing on my door mat woke me up! Great to finally see it. Has a good quality feel to it and a decent size. Lots of film and album stills with some JG here and there. Looking forward to reading through it. Nice to get a personal message from the author in the inside cover.

That’s cool. I had to contact the publisher as my confirmation a couple weeks ago showed incorrect address info (I entered right- they messed it up). They apologized and sent another copy priority mail. I appreciated that very much. Should be arriving next week.

Anyone who read it already would share their opinion about it? I mostly would like to know if there are stories about how certain scores were born, some behind the scenes anecdotes or it is mostly analyzing the music.

What I have read so far I would say there are a lot of movie and score reviews and references to albums. Films and scores are discussed in sections relating to the subject matter. There is a nice updated forward by Robert Townson.

Great news, my copy arrived this morning.

Only problem is it's the Spanish version. I ordered the English version. frown

Quick question... can you let me know which email address you sent to? I've tried two different ones for them but haven't received a response yet.

I've tried three times to order the English edition of this book, but their ordering website appears defective. It keeps asking me for a shipping method, yet there is no shipping option either shown or available. Also, what is the American cost of the book and the shipping charges for three copies? I've pressed the English translation button, but the Spanish cost appears without an English equivalent. How the devil does one order this book?????????
