The instant chess book

I've often thought that these were a thing of the past, but there will be an 'instant' chess book on the 2013 Anand-Carlsen World Championship Match. The most famous of these is undoubtedly the book by Svetazor Gligoric on the 1972 Fischer v Spassky Match, where his notes were flown from Iceland to England after each game, for typesetting. Of course in these modern times the moves are easy to come by, so I'm a little surprised we don't see more of it.
(NB I'm not advertising this book, as much as pointing out it will shortly exist)
