thanks for sharing this alan,

as much as there is talk about the changing nature of knowledge and
scholarship in the digital age, it sure does seem like most academics
are wedded to traditional publishing, given its credential adding status.

do these books sell well? i've considered publishing as a way to get
more people to read my work, and of course to build my cv as an emerging
academic myself...

do they all have isbn's?

how has your self publishing experience been in general?
