    Request a Non-Fiction Book Discussion Topic on a Specific Book

    Only staff members can start new book threads on this board as each thread's first message must be in a very specific format with specific links used, etc. If you would like a thread on a specific non-fiction book (that does not better fit one of the other book discussion forums) started here, you may request it in this thread.

    Each Request must have the following information or it will be ignored:

    1) The (correct) title of the book
    2) The author of the book
    3) The book's ISBN (we prefer the old 10 digit one, but the new 13 digit will do).

    Requests for books on Pagan Religions, Magic, Occult, etc. or for Academic books do not belong here.

    Please don't hide the above in a lot of text in the middle of a paragraph. We will try to get new topics started as soon as the few people authorized to create book topics get around to it. This will NOT be immediately.

    I hope I put this in the right thread! I'm a touch unsure. Thanks Randall!

    No worries! Hopefully someone besides me has or will read it, and will give us their take too.

    I haven't read it, but I've enjoyed all the books by Karen Armstrong I have read. I haven't always agreed with her as she tends to paint some things with too broad of brush strokes.
