Luther Blissett

With close to hundred volumes in the complete works, around sixty translated to English, the possibility that another book will radically change our understanding of Heidegger's way of thinking is pretty thin. It's more likely hype in an attempt to get philosophers to open their wallets, yet again.
Note what happened with Faye. He claimed there was a secret seminar, deliberately suppressed, yadda yadda, from which he selectively quoted out of context. So the seminar was published, and translated, and we now know it was too slight, nothing really new; rightly not included in the complete works. The translation had to be fleshed out with essays from Zizek, etc, and is still selling less than Faye's diatribe which "exposed" it.
Caveat emptor.
