I understand that the book is delivered by Canadian postal service but once it reaches US, who picks it up ? Does anyone has any idea who I should contact locally ? UPS or USPS or Fedex etc etc

Thanks,
Hari....
Hi Hari, as mentioned in my pm's I contacted the postal service and I am waiting for info from you

As for books to the UK and other overseas destinations, books were shipped by ground due to cost....patience will sadly be needed. 6-8 weeks was the eta I was given....it's been 2 weeks. Alternately they could have been shipped air but it would have doubled the price of the book. I really didn't want to contact everyone overseas and ask for an additional $80. They are on their way, sorry for the wait

Charlie and others, thanks for the kind reviews, I'm stoked your enjoying the book

Cheers

Ted

I just spent 2 hours looking through the book, what a great piece of work. Brodovitch, Deadly99- fantastic job!

A great testiment to Ned's success...

The International Dakar press is so fixated on the top tier teams, and really glossed over ( if even that) of Ned's accomplishments at this past year's Dakar Rally as well as many other privateers.

It's so great to have an inside view of Ned's experience through out the Rally, as well as others within the scope of Ted's book. And having the book available shortly afterwards is extremely beneficial coinciding with our memory of the events.

TFTB offers so much more appreciation for the preparation Ned implemented... and a true journal of how it all panned out in the end.

This is always the information that seasoned followers of the Dakar lust for, and can never gain full access to.

I also thoroughly enjoy the inside view of the Rally PanAm support team. Again, insight that never gets to the surface of Dakar coverage.

I'm only on Stage 7... but am savoring the moments of each chapter's read.

I'm dreading when the story ends... but hopefully there are continuations to this trilogy.

I'd love to read a follow up on/by Ned... an in depth look of his before, during and afterthoughts... favorite photos of his roadbook coinciding with photos of the terrain. And his final thoughts after the experience has completely set in.

And Charlie certainly has a prequel out there.

And of course, Ted... TFTB D13... the sequel?

Ted, I am sure the wait for us in the UK will be worth it !! Fully understand the reasons.

I just finished working 7 days in a row and finally got a chance to open the book. What a fantastic escape from the last 7 days. Your passion and attention to detail are coming through loud and clear.

I don't want to ruin anything for c.vestal, but on his behalf, thank you for the kind words. Chris is again busy with work, bikes, and rally moto kit.

I really can't thank you enough for taking the time to do this project. You are transporting me to a time and place that I desperately wanted to be, but couldn't do to work constraints.

Put me down for a couple of more copies for the family and friends that questioned what Chris was doing in South America, on Christmas, without me!

Thanks again to you and Mrs. Deadly and everyone involved...it's brilliant!

With some sadness, I have finished the book this morning. Thank you so much for sharing the experience with us Ted. Awesome job, and special thanks to Ned, Toby, and others who contributed to thier personal experiences on the stages. It was a great read, and you offered great insights to the average fan from both the inside looking out as well as the outside looking in! It made the story really interesting and easy to relate to, to get both perspectives.

How many more days to the next Dakar?

I keep coming back to this book now that I've read the physical copy, it was great as bed-time reading in the Albania race, plus I got the chance to show it to 2 professional photographers there, they were awe-struck at the amount of information and the cool photos

Hi Pete, overseas shipping was done by ground as air prices would have doubled the cost. 6-8 weeks delivery time unfortunately.....books were shipped 3 weeks ago....regular sales won't begin until every pre order has been received

Stoked on the feedback and glad everyone is enjoying the book

Ted

Ted,

This is the book we have been craving. Honestly, from keeping up with your posts during the race I expected a good effort with the book. This is much, much better than good. Fantastic! Thanks!
