      Hello again. 2 months and counting. Still very little action in the mailbox. Care to comment on this, Zack?

    2. James Gray on October 13

      Not received the book either and I'm in the uk. It looks like someone else has in the U.K. But it wasn't the same.

    3. Anton Wiberg on October 2

      A month and a half since you were sending cookbooks to international backers, but still nothing here in Sweden. Did you ship it on an actual ship, and that's why it takes so long?

      btw: I didn't contribute at the Cookbook level, but ordered my copy directly from the printer when it was first made available online a few months ago. My copy was shipped directly from Spring House Press, which is why it arrived at the beginning of this month.

      Dan & Co. are now beginning to send books out to the contributors. Be patient... - PL&PS!

      Aug. 3, 2016. Found a heavy, flat package in my mail today and wondered, "What the heck is this? I haven't ordered anything lately, have I?" I open the package and, lo and behold,

      IT'S MY COOKBOOK! Yay Dan! I hope the naysayers are all eventually satisfied!

      It's good to be patient!

      Now, where's my freakin postcard? LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!

      My pledge + $20 for overseas shipping - Zack, how about you give me back my money, and I order the book on Amazon instead?

      POTATO SALADS OF THE WORLD: Receive a recipe book with potato salad recipes inspired by each country where we have a backer along with a bite of the potato salad, a photo of me making the potato salad, a 'thank you' posted to our website and I will say your name out loud while making the potato salad.

      The recipe book will have a dedication page with the name of each of our backers.

      Ships anywhere in the world
      Estimated delivery: Dec 2014

    10. Matthias Eitschberger on July 31

      There is a spot on my wall that is in sore need of a photo of potato salad. I'm getting desperate enough that I might just have to make my own potato salad and take a picture of that.

    13. Tommy Sääf on July 9

      Where is the photo I was promised?

    14. Irene Thrana on May 17

      Never got my photo.

      andrea on March 1, 2016

      I never got my potato salad. I paid 5 bucks!! Where's my piece of the pie, I mean salad??!

    19. Zack Danger Brown Creator on February 14, 2016

      Hey Matthias! Thanks for keeping me honest!

      Potato Salad is hard work. Photo and website have definitely been put on the back burner, but I have good news. The book goes to the printer next week! Here's some proof (!

      I will get the other things taken care of. Juggling Potato Salad and life responsibilities can get really complicated. I'm sorry I haven't delivered on all of the rewards yet, but I promise that I will. Again, thank you for staying engaged. I appreciate you all.

    20. Matthias Eitschberger on February 13, 2016

      No book, no photo, no website, no response, no nothing? Is this about zen and the art of making potato salad vanishing into satori? Come on, Zack, you can do better.

      I still want to frame my picture reward on the wall with a fancy frame and gallery lighting. Potato salad is art... or will be, when we get our picture. QQ

      (To be fair, we've already gotten way more laughter out of this project than $2 would normally buy)

    23. Kimberly Palmer on November 16, 2015

      Were the postcards ever sent out?

    24. Zack Danger Brown Creator on October 27, 2015

      Hey there! Yes! Sorry for lapse in communication. Look forward to some updates on the 8th and 9th of November. That will be our second round of shooting. We are shooting 12 more recipes and the final product will have 24 potato salads.

      We are doing this because we just signed an agreement with a publisher! The books will be beautiful and will be available in late Spring or early Summer of 2016! Thank you for your patience. I promise we will not disappoint.

      Any update on the cookbook? It's been 3 months since we last heard from you.
      Any news is welcome even if that news contains more delays.

    26. mashdots on October 7, 2015

      I never got my potato salad. : (

    27. Anton Wiberg on September 30, 2015

      Recipe book, what's the status?
      Also, will it really be inspired by all countries that had backers?

      Hey there! I just sent a second round of t-shirts and hats. This shipment went to Alf Kohn, Dianna Alix Adiemus Hawryluk, Jen Grubb, Jeremy Markovits, and Robin Caspari. If you are still missing a t-shirt, hat or both, please leave me a comment in the "Hey There!! It's Update Time!" update. I have not forgotten about any of you and will not stop until all rewards have been delivered!

    35. Dainis W. Michel on April 27, 2015

      hey, you totally don't need to send me anything physical -- maybe just send me the picture via email or something.

      i think your project is wonderful -- and my mom has the best potato salad recipe ever ever ever ever.

      better than anything in your book anyway!

      i am happy to have you save the shipping -- really -- if you send me the picture for backing you -- eh -- i'm sad that you'd have to pay shipping. really.

      can you email me the pic?

      now i'm getting wishy washy -- if you do send me something -- i'll put it up on my "wall of awesomeness" in my home :-)

      Pretty unimpressed with how this whole thing has played out. Given the amount of money raised and the press this campaign received, I had hoped for more. At the very least, keeping us all posted regularly would have been nice. The latest update only made it worse.

      Must be the case (@Michael), as he is not answering my questions about my missing t-shirt.

      He's rolling around in potato salad and too busy to reply obviously.
