To My Readers:

I have been all over the map in recent weeks trying to digest the information I got from each of you and synthesize it into a plan for myself which will result in a book I am proud of and others are interested in reading. Here are some of my thoughts (as much for me as for you).

The current draft has many nice components but they are more of an encyclopedia than a non-fiction book. The book should have a clear audience, a clear thesis or purpose, and should move in a way which is both warm and compelling to the conclusion. Anything that doesn't move the audience to the conclusion doesn't belong in the book.
