The book idea is a good one, but the problem is finding the time to do it.

If you really want a book then you should work out the chapters you want covered, and the sort of content you want in any chapter. You've also got to pitch it to a certain level; beginner, med and advanced, or, somehow, and this is where it gets difficult, pitch to all.

I've 2 books in prep right now, and a ton of papers, and I've been unable to pick up none over the past 8 months. It's very frustrating!

What would be REALLY amusing would be if we all wrote each others sections. It could be put in the Top 10 Comedy Section down at Waterstones....

If everyone gave me a bunch of papers on ceph care, I'd be happy to put it together.

Great! Now everybody, gimme the papers, and written legal documents, clearly stating permission to use your material. (a bit of funding wouldn't hurt either, me & octomush are just 13 year olds you know.)
