Looking for an experts' expert

I'm a bit frustrated.

I am a very, very good crocheter.  I can make anything I put my mind to.  I read and write patterns.  I can read and draw charts.  I can work without a pattern ... ...

BUT -

 - I still want to learn.

Does anyone else wish that the crochet experts' expert would write a really advanced book?  Properly difficult stuff?

I would save up my whole year's crochet fund for an enormous, lovely read that was challenging, interesting and unusual.  

We have beginners' books by the thousand but nothing for the confident crocheter that I have found.  I would really love a text that gives little known and advanced techniques, original and difficult patterns, tricks for shaping and sizing, combining different forms of crochet and taking risks.  What about a world tour of crochet in different cultures and though out history?  Wouldn't that be fascinating?

I say 'book' because that is my preferred medium.  All glossy and gorgeous and smelling new.  However, any from would be ok.

Does anyone know of a person able to write this?  Would you be able to write it?  Would you love to read it?  What else would you like to learn from an experts' expert?
