This weekend, I have been shipping a PDF file of the 95% ready version (pre-proof read, indexing) of The New Polymath to several executives for their “back-jacket” blurbs and to several journalists and bloggers for their reviews ahead of the book’s availability in a few weeks.
Frankly, I am impressed how many have agreed to conduct such reviews. In our shrinking world of 140 character Twitter messages and short blog posts it is good to see people volunteer to read 350 pages. It was nice of Debbie Brown, who volunteered to proof the book, to send me this note:
I find myself reading vs editing- it’s that good :)
Here’s an invitation to other technology bloggers and journalists I did not previously reach. If you like to review books and write reviews, please send me a note at vmirchan AT gmail DOT com and indicate where the review would be posted. Thanks.
Talking of betas, the beta website for the book is also available now.
