I urge Mr. Childress to re-issue this interesting book in a second edition, and have a professional editor go through it and improve the presentation. A few of the problems:
- None of the photographs and diagrams are attributed. Each needs to include a caption that cites the source.
- The publisher skimped on page margins. Please, add margins.
- Replace all the exclamation marks with periods. Especially if the intent is to be taken seriously.
- The bibliography is not arranged in the order in which the works are cited in the text.
- Many of the photographs in the text are repeated at the end of each chapter. Delete the redundancies.
- At least two books are cited twice (each) in the bibliography.
- People's names are misspelled (is it Robin Collyns or Robyn Collins? - can't be both!), as are some book titles ("Laser Beams" is not interchangeable with "Laserbeams").
- Do not take up entire pages quoting from specific works. Summarize the material and use a few choice quotes.
- Choose either "mankind" or "humankind", and use that one term consistently. Honestly, we women do not have a problem with the word "mankind"; we have a problem with inconsistencies.
With a little pulling-together, this book could have a professional look and sound. After all, firm footing and credibility are what the author is striving for.
