    Default The Pygmalion Project Vol 4 The Rational

    by Stephen E Montgomery. Does this book actually exist? Everything I've seen says it's out of print but as far as I can tell, it's never been in print. Does anyone know where I can get hold of a copy? If you own this book, would you be prepared to provide synopsis/review? Highlights of the literary references would suffice.

    Hope this is the right place to post this and am not committing classic INTP faux pas.

    Also interested to hear what Idealists thought of Volume 3.

    Cheers for any help.

    I haven't looked for it within the last year or two, but for years I remember waiting for it and only ever seeing books dedicated to the other three Keirsey archetypes. So if you haven't run across it recently, I'm not sure it exists either. (Maybe someone else has had some luck.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Actually, I'm thinking we could handle that.

    I went to BookFinder.com and only found volumes II & III.

    Apparently, it does exist, but Amazon has its name as:
    Pygmalion Project: The Rational
    Publisher: Prometheus Nemesis Book Company
    (Paperback - May 2003)
    Unfortunately, they have none listed for sale and no reviews.

    Do a Google search for "Pygmalion Project: The Rational" Montgomery
    There are a lot of results.

    Okay! Well! Here's the deal.
    I just got off the phone with the publisher and they haven't printed it yet.
    They intended to publish it in May of 2003.
    The receptionist said she had given up trying to guesstimate when the expected date of print might be.
    So. There you have it.

    Perhaps a successful grassroots movement might convince the publisher they could afford to make a minimum print run.

    Maybe if you could get a bunch of people to pre-order it at Amazon?

    But I'm an INTP - that's a bit coercive for me. Besides, I don't know enough people who would find it interesting....
