Another plea to add to RocketHealer's

Posted by Walt Stoll on December 11, 1999 at 09:42:52:

Robert,

Your public is waiting. Remember when I suggested to you that you were learning so fast that you were going to, inevitably, go through the same stage that I did when writing MY book?

It took me 2 years to get through this stage even though my publisher kept telling me my book was ready to be published. We are all hoping that it wil not take you as long as it did me.

The stage, if you recall, is when you will take a look at the book and say: " I already know better than that so I have to completely rewrite this part."

The solution is to just publish what you have ready and write new editions that keep the book on the cutting edge. Even if your book is 5 years behind your own knowledge, it will still be 20 years ahead of the "standard of practice" in the medical profession.

The public needs what you have to say.

Unsolicited advice, I know! Hope you will take it in the spirit in which it is offered.

Namaste`

Walt

Hi Walt,

Thanks for the advice. I really would like to get to the finish line on this one but I've realized that if I want to really make a 'wave' that there will have to me more than what I previously thought.

I guess that I started with the idea that a book would be the finish -- but now I see that it would hopefully only be the first hill in a much longer race.

I can empathize with RHJim's anxiety that he is 'missing' something. I had that same sensation when waiting for your book.

Thanks again for the constructive comments. I WILL get a book out or die trying :-) !!

Bob

Could I be the first person on the list of people to be notified when both of those books are available? I too am excited for that outcome!

Thanks, Jim.

I hope Robert takes this to heart!

As you well know, I have long hoped for you to publish what you have to offer the world. If Robert's finishing his is what it takes, I guess we will all have to bug him every day (grin).

You have a wonderful gift! I would hate to see it lost to the world.

Namaste`

Walt
