      The book has arrived now, although it was not in a good condition. On the edges you can see wear marks, which is kind of bad as a gift. Better packaging could have prevented this.

      I did not receive a physical copy of the book either. A status update would be nice.

      I still haven't received my book either. Unfortunately I also didn't get the digital version as the email went to my junk folder and the link was in y good for 1 week.

      Hi Alex, I couldn’t find any where to contact you expect on here. I was away (traveling!) when the book arrived & hence couldn’t collect it from the post office. Unfortunately, the book was returned to sender. What can be done in this situation? Thank you.

      @nealeAu: can you be more specific about the errors?

      Received the digital version. The book looks create but content is weak with numerous errors, for example Japan. Glad I only backed the digital version and not spent the extra on the hard copy.

      The book gives very brief and general view about the country. Simple but I wished it could have gotten a little more in depth. But realizing that there is so many countries, it would be reasonable to accept that it and it did cover a very diverse range of places. Likewise, food and budgeting part is great gives a view about what to plan for.

      However, there is another mistake I would like to add to the list under Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, “saya faham” means I understand and it does not translate as I do not understand. Seems to be disappointing realizing there was not a more detail check before publishing.

      Received mine sometime ago, forgot to post here. I like the quality of the cover, it's nice to touch. Overall the book seems to be high quality. Nice tight package of most crucial information about the cities. Really not the book to take along if you want a lot of information about your travel destination. I feel like this is more of an "at home browsing" book.

      I have received my book and enjoy the little snapshot of the included countries. I also enjoy the wide margins would be helpful to do handwritten notes/updates if I'm not visiting a country before there are significant changes to any of the information.

      Just a note/question, demonstrating my own ignorance that Google is not helping me unravel: Under transport, I am still a little unsure about what exactly CSV stands for. Contextually, I can deduce the general implication, but since I don't see it explicitly outlined anywhere in the book, my desire to know exactly what it stands for is distracting me a bit.

      I received mine in the mail a few days ago and I’m very happy how it came out it came out great! It’s straight to the point and gives you what you need to get around. If you want a tourist book that tells you the sites this is not the boom for you but if you need useful things and ideas for food this is great!

    13. Artur Lille on

      Received my copy of the book. Haven't read it yet, but first impression is a little bit of disappointment. Was hoping for maybe a different kind of paper (something more glossy that feels better in hands); current one in my opinion will get damaged quickly if not careful (especially since it doesn't have tougher/thicker cover). All the sides of the book cover and also lots of pages already got damaged during the shipping...

      Also seems like not a lot of information per city. (I was mostly looking forward for information about Japan and since this book only includes 2 japanese cities the amount is underwhelming. "Luckly" the book was delayed so much that I already visited Japan myself and the information provided here is too little too late anyway).

      But at least I got the print that looks nice, so that's something!

      Amazing, thanks so much received and looks great. well done ! Also I am launching my Kickstarter in 2 days aquanautia here is the preview https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aquanautia/66393756… and if anyone has any advice on anything to add, that would be awesome :)

      I just received mine. Looks great ! Solid book. However, some Korean phrases should be improved to phrases that are much easier to pronounce for foreigners.

      Oh another thing, “Wakarimasu” means “I understand” not “I don’t understand” in Japanese. “Wakarimasen” is the right phrase.

      one bit of info the guide could use, under ettiquette, is local attitudes and laws re: LGBT folk, religion, etc. It's often vital to know if you need to watch yourself and tell white lies or not.

      Just received my copy today. Flipping through it, I can’t help but notice that the Mandarin phrases had some errors - for instance, someone saying “sorry” would probably go with duibuqi instead of baoqian and the translation for wodong is “I understand”, not “I don’t understand” (in the Guangzhou section). There’s also some pages that are copied over into multiple sections (like repeating the Mandarin phrases for each Chinese city).

      I’d been planning to gift this to someone, but given just the mistakes that I’ve noticed so far...I’m rather disappointed, unfortunately.

      My book arrived today which was really exciting! I love the layout and the photography is truly beautiful. Was expecting maybe a little more information per city. But overall I'm pleased :) the book is beautifully put together. Thank you!

      Hi Alex, just saw your update. Congrats on the new member of your family.

      @Tzukasa again, per the last update, we go to print this month and will notify backers when that happens.

      Well I guess there won’t be any book soon ...

    30. James Vazquez on

      Delays happen people! just relax I’m sure the book will be worth the wait but on the other hand this project does have to do a better job with the communication ....the last update was December 5th it’s now January 26th. If there’s no new update just inform everyone that it’s still being worked on and a shipping update will be around soon.....people have invested money for months in this project and just want to be kept informed. At the end of the day I’m sure this book is going to come out great and will be worth the wait!

    31. Alex Hunter Creator on

      Also, while I appreciate your frustrations at the delay, please keep your comments civil - we're working as hard as we can despite some hiccups. I appreciate your patience and support in this final stretch.

    32. Alex Hunter Creator on

      For those asking about the digital version, they will be released when the physical books ship.

    33. Alex Hunter Creator on

      @Daniel we will communicate when we have something to say. I appreciate your patience until then.

    34. Alex Hunter Creator on

      @Aaron I can assure you that we are continuing to work on the project but won't ship crap. There will be an update when we reach another significant milestone .Your patience is appreciated until then.

      Mr. Hunter, this project has very poor communication. I'm very disappointed so far.

      "..update shortly" That was 2 weeks ago. I guess we have different definitions of "shortly"?

      We'll be issuing another update shortly that will address the digital version release date. Standby.

      Has the digital version been released yet? I know usually they have a 2-3 week head start from the hard copies. Thanks for any update. Looking forward to reading this soon.

    44. Uli Gottwald on

      @Cillian
      I don't think it'll go out within the next 2 weeks. The update from Nov. 6th says:
      "... while we don’t have a concrete ship date yet..."

      Surveys for book backers haven't been sent out yet either, so you may want to consider getting an other christmas present. :(

      Can we get an update on deliveries, I was hoping to give these as Christmas presents need to know if that’s going to be possible or not ?

      Don’t think they sent out surveys yet....just sent out the Signed picture to those who purchased it. I’m sure we will see an update before Dec 1st since the original shipping date was November which obviously they aren’t going to make.

    48. Jon Raymond on

      @ Terence - I have not received a survey yet.

      Has anyone recieve the online survey yet?
