A Collector's Item
I now am the proud owner of a rare collector's copy of Rudel's 'Zuke 'Em' book.
The first print has been withdrawn due to an excessive number of typos. A new edition is now under work and buyers of the first batch will have a new copy free of charge. More information can be found at Chessco's home page.
I have no idea whether this image will be the new cover or not. Actually I suspect the blue color is only symbolic - representing the author's and publisher's regret for having sent a poorly proof-read manuscript to the printers.
Addendum July 20th
Yesterday I received a new copy and as I suspected, the cover is unchanged. The new version has a new ISBN number and on page 255 I found my name on a list of people who helped finding typos in the first edition. There are still typos but the number now seems not to be disturbing.
