The German version is quite different from the original english version.
I've had numerous revisions mailed to me. (today again 2)

Let's first get the German version finished, that will be hard enough.
I've spent already far more time on this book than I ever imagined.

Then I'll talk again to the editors: I said 'sort of obtained' in my 
original mail: That means that nothing is fixed or decided yet; So
all this is highly unofficial and completely subject to the decision
of the editors.
