Well I've only been a Classic Mini owner for 3 years.  So what was the Italian Job and how does it relate to the Mini?  Was it a movie or a special edition of the Mini?

Barnes and Nobles email reads:
"We're sorry, but because of an unexpected delay, we are unable to ship the item(s) listed below  on the date we provided for your order # 123456789.  We anticipate that your item(s) will be shipped within the next 1-5 business days.  (Please note: business days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays observed by the Post Office.)

Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay."

So time will tell.  Kind of like waiting for someone to pay for the parts they got from you.

While waiting for your copy to arrive you might try "Blowing the Bloody Doors Off and other lessons on life" by Michael Caine.
My wife bought me a copy while we were in London back in June.

There were stacks of them at IMM2019.  I helped setup a second tent over the books to keep them dry during a downpour as the giant tent they were in was leaking. they were 45 pounds, and up to 95 depending on who signed the book. They were selling a lot of books.

Sir Michael Caine recommends


It was a better price at Amazon - free shipping, no state tax, but seems like Porter Press UK didn't print enough to meet the demand.  Looks like it is available from them at 45 GBP (around $55.00 US). But then there's shipping, handling, etc.

You can also go to their website and look at a few of the pages, and read the forward from Sir Michael.
