Request a Book Discussion Topic on a Specific Academic Book
« on: February 05, 2012, 03:09:23 pm »
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 Academic book  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).

Please  don't hide the above in a lot of text in the middle of a paragraph.  Remember, this board is for true academic works, not for popular press  books that sound scholarly. 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'm not sure if this is a truly academic book?  I believe so, but I'm not certain of the standards here :).  I'd like to discuss it, I just finished reading it for the ADF Dedicant Path and I found it fascinating!
