So far only "Batman and Son" is out in HC and TPB. I did not really like the first half (which is more the "Batman and Son" part), but I did like the second half which introduced the mystery of the "replacement" Batmen. The (in)famous Joker prose story is also in that collection.
The "Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul" I wouldn't really count because it was a multi-Bat title cross-over, and Grant only wrote 2 of those issues.
The next HC due out is "The Black Glove", which I thoroughly did enjoy, covering two story arcs (Batman solving the mystery of a new mysterious organization setting up a game where they kill off an International group of superheroes modeled after the Batman one by one and then further exploring the replacement Batmen story).
Currently "Batman: RIP" is a culmination of Grant's entire run on Batman plus trying to make sense of Batman's entire comic book history and how it fits into continuity. I'm currently digging it, but I think how it ends will make or break it.
