We apologize for the inconvenience. For the record, the problem is that Spycraft 2.0 is a BIG BOOK - the biggest Mongoose has produced - and that it sometimes appears fine at the facility but winds up having minor defects that become major ones in transit. Fortunately, from what we're seeing, the issue is fairly rare. Given the number of books reportedly sold, the number of binding errors has actually been relatively low.
It is more important to me how a company deals with the problems that exist than having a flawless product, since a flawless product is just a pipe-dream. It is better by far to just own up to problems and address them rather than point fingers and proclaim it is someone elses fault.
To their credit, everything I have heard here is that Mongoose has been very responsive to their customer's problems. Despite the binding problems some people have had, their handling of the problem earns them customer respect and confidence.
If I read this thread and saw people had binding (or any other) issues and Mongoose turned a deaf ear and blind eye, I would seriously consider not ordering anything from them. As is, I am much more apt to peruse the rest of their library, secure in knowing that, ultimately, I'll get what I paid for.
Printing and binding problems can be addressed, but poor customer service will remove any need for them to do so.
