My Taxonomy Book Finally Published

Friday was a great day… my new book finally arrived in two solid boxes from the UK. Ok, it’s a little self-indulgent to read your own book, but if you’ve gone through so much labour, it’s hard to resist! You too could pose for a picture like this… just visit or!

Congratulations on publishing your book!

I’d be interested to have a look . . . I see Amazon haven’t got the ‘search’ feature for it yet - would you be able to email me the table of contents and the introduction, or something along those lines?

Keep basking in those warm feelings . . . <g>

Thanks Lauchlan, I’m emailing you the sneak previews separately, and plan to have this up on a dedicated webpage very very soon!

About time Patricksmile- When you went away to Ireland, are you sure you were working on the book??!!  having been privileged to see early chapter drafts, I can’t wait to see the final baby. Presumably my autographed copy is in the mail?  congratulations Patrick.

Congratulations - formally! smile I have found it to be a book relevant for every person seeking to improve organisational effectiveness. Most of all, I liked how you ease in the far-reaching application of taxonomies beyond the apparent iceberg tip.

congratulations - quite an achievement. Looks like something I should read, but currently wading through a 3-book reading list. If I could mirror the request from Lauchlan, I’d be interested in seeing the table of contents and the intro. Is that possible?

I look forward to reading it but I’ve noticed that Amazon charges a sourcing fee, which I’ve never seen before, “$39.95 + $30.00 sourcing fee”. I’m going to check my independent bookseller and see what kind of a price I can get on it.

Hi Harold - I think this was originally a pricing error on Amazon - the published price is 39.95 sterling pounds, and when Amazon first listed it, they listed it at USD39.95 ie no currency conversion. The current format looks to me like a patch because for some bizarre reason they can’t easily amend the original price. 

I have a few copies at author’s discount, which turns out to be around USD60 once they’ve mailed the books to me, so if you can get a better price let me know!

Now that’s news grin.

Congratulations on the publishing. I’m curious about the contents too.

Best regards,
