      I actually never got the book and I ordered more than just one copy of it. It has been a while since I donated money to this project. I guess, I just never get a copy ): but hopefully others got the copy (:

      Hi Leo, I have still not received my physical copy yet, as the email is bouncing back emails. What is the status of my delivery?

    11. Syed Asad Zahoor on August 16, 2015

      Hi Leo, I still haven't received the physical copy of the book. And I'm very disappointed to be honest, I sent two emails to Brian on 25/06 and 03/07 with no response. Finally got a reply on 25/07 from Maia Cruz confirming book would be dispatched soon. And here we are again, nothing yet :(

      Hi Leo, I still havent received the physical book (Europe, Slovakia). Could you provide us with some more info?

    16. Nancy Zan on July 27, 2015

      I find it very strange that so many of you are missing the digital version of the book, I received mine back on February 6th, under the email subject: "Zen Habits Digital Editions!", sent by

      I'm really just curious, and I apologize if this isn't the place to ask this question, but did you guys fill out the survey responding where your e-book should be delivered to shortly after you received it in your inbox? Just trying to figure out how things got shifted along the way.

      Hello again, I'm still waiting to hear from someone regarding a book and a digital copy that has not made its way to my home. I am at the point of being frustrated unfortunately. Could someone reply to an email that was sent to Brian today? I'm sure I'm not the only one but this is my third posting here and I backed the project in good faith back in December. Please make an effort to clear this up. Thank you!

    21. Josh on July 11, 2015

      Hi Leo, I am unfortunately in the same camp as several of the below commenters (no hard copy, no response from Brian despite multiple emails). I had originally requested my copy to be shipped to my home address in Hong Kong, but if the overseas address is the problem, I can provide a US shipment address. Hope all is well! -Andy

      Hello Leo,
      thanks for the fabulous book. I received it in good condition at my hometown Arnhem, The Netherlands.
      I'm planning to blog regurlarly on my progress with the first small habit change and hope that some followers will support me and maybe even better that they also take up a challenge to change something.
      Of course I will in every blogpost refer to your book and website.
      Thanks again and all the best for you and your family.

      Hello Leo,

      I see below you've addressed the delay for the international orders but I am in Los Angeles and I still have NOT received my book. It's now June. Could you check on this please? I'm waiting and hoping to see it in my mailbox each day but it hasn't arrived. I'm glad the international people are now acknowledging receipt of the book but I would like to receive my copy as well.

      Hello, guys, slightly off topic, but wanted to ask. For those of you who filled in the survey, which rewards did you get? I've filled it in my name etc...but didn't get any rewards or my be the reward was brief guide to mindfulness?:) I've backed the digital btw. Didn't have my name on it either. Thanks for all the answers. Peace.

      Got my book today (Denmark). I think my address was one of those with "weird characters", since it contains an "æ". Kickstarter really should advice creators about this potential problem.
