I’ve gotten a very good response to my request for help with my upcoming book, both for research/sanity check support and (when the project is further along) review of select chapters.
For the benefit of those who expressed interest in being on the research team (not to worry, it will not be a cast of thousands), I need to organize some of the tasks I see as clearly needing to be done (others, more focused, will no doubt come up as I get further along in my own research) so that we can see if this might be a fit.
That is a long-winded way of saying that I need to set out explicitly how I am going about it and where I now see gaps (I have it in my head, but I doubt any of you are mind readers). That will enable those who put up their hands to ascertain whether this is indeed their cup of tea, and if so, what tasks in particular might appeal to them. I have a few other deck clearing activities underway (you do not want to know, I spent the better part of Friday PM dealing with plumbing), and so expect to get back to those of you who e-mailed me by mid-next week.
