BDG Books: an Update

I received a note from Guido De Bouver today, informing me that had shipped his copy of the long-awaited BDG book by Christoph Scheerer, The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit: A Modern Guide to a Fascinating Chess Opening. So, it seems the footsteps that we hear down the hall are real.

The page at shows the book is indeed available, and provides the capability to "click to look inside." As of now, the US Amazon page (which also provides the "look inside" capability) only has the message "Sign up to be notified when this item becomes available."

Guido asked me to announce:
I am working on the second volume of my book, including the euwe and bogoljubow defense. But time is a problem right now.  What I am looking for is some help, someone who could help me with this effort of detailed analysis of the various lines.
