Geo, maybe you need to get a life and stop attacking other posters? Honestly. It was and is an excellent question.

Until James starts asking us to pay for his advice, he can keep his identity as quiet as he wants to. Few people who post here do so under their real names that they publish under, although I happen to be one of the exceptions. There is no reason he should be held to a different standard. Now if he asks for money, I’ll demand a list of what he’s published. He gives, consistently, excellent, knowledgeable FREE advice and his comment on this issue was perfectly valid.

Arguing with him if you think he is wrong on a specific topic is fine, but your personal attacks should stop.

The book in question was written by a published author whose advice I’d be willing to look at. But before you read and take someone’s advice on in a book on writing, make sure they actually know something about it. A lot of the writing how-to books out there were written by people who have never successfully sold a thing EXCEPT a how-to book. Avoid those like the plague.

James was just saying look before you buy. I second that. This particular book sounds interesting.
