Received two one signed and one not (not to resell btw). The signed one came a few days late by Royal Mail and the non-signed one came via APC. Both of them where put through the letterbox which is not ideal as its a large drop, but luckily the both books are still mint.

The whole experience was shocking. I know people who have received two signed books when ordered them together, people who ordered them before people who received signed copies yet there's weren't. Deffo a company to avoid

Also forgot to the mention the none signed ones also have a lot of faded words on the ink. Seems their quality control is bad

I have a friend who is a carp book collector. I was working in his house this weekend when he happened to have just received Terryís book and Subsurface 4. I have to say from a purely design and feel point of view, Terryís was very underwhelming. I donít think Calm Productions have really done him justice at all. Itís got a cramped feel to it, the whole thing looks shoe horned in. The layout is far too boxy. Simple half page photo, top or bottom of the page with text crammed in above/ underneath. Very disappointing. Doesnít have a feel of a designed book, more an exercise of just fitting it all in. If it had the layout and feel of the latest subsurface or the bcsg books it would be amazing. As it is, although Iím sure itís a brilliant read, it looks and feels like just another carp book. Shame as it could have been spectacular. A missed opportunity to do something very special.

Mine turned up after only a week or so and in mint condition which seems like a rarity having flicked through here. Have also noticed the dodgy print on the left hand page. Nothing that Iím worried about, but Iíd be a bit pissed if I was Terry.

Content so far has been great, strong first chapters. Got to agree with what someone else said that Iím not overly excited to read a lot of the chapters as theyíve been largely covered on some form of media before. Wasing, Burghfield, Tunnels & Little Grey for example.

Missed out on a first edition due to moving house & no reliable internet connection, but looks like I didn't miss out on the "good experience" from the Calm website! Will have to hope I can get one of the second edition prints in the New Year as not going to be paying inflated prices.

@midlandman. You'll love it mate. I'm a bit of a collector of carp books, I have a bookcase full, but there are only a small handful I go back to read again. This is one of them, 100%.

Received Terrys book today in Belgium, damaged as well, not to bad but enough to make my angry a little bit. Ordered some kids book few days a go and it came properly packed and corners protected. p.s Did anyone maybe see Mike Willmotts Carp life (first one) for sale somewhere? how much do they go for if anyone knows?

Weird isn't it - the pics are fine, it's only the words that are odd.

The content though is up there (if not better) than his first two

It's brilliant mate. I'm only half way through and it's right up there with his first 2 imo.

Anyone have any more reviews on the content? I know itís not long been out, just considering whether itís worth the hassle of trying to order one.

I would send the book back if damaged in any way , and ask for a refund.

Anyone else noticed the same character/word 3/4 down on the left hand page is poorly printed throughout?
