Somin on Writing an Academic Book

Ilya Somin has a nice article out about writing an academic book, and much of the advice is relevant to writing any nonfiction book.

Update: See also Somin’s second part, mainly about publishers. He writes, “Even the most famous presses publish some mediocre books (or worse). And there are truly outstanding books that get published by little-known presses. On average, however, there is a rough correlation between the ranking of the publisher and the quality of books and authors they typically get, even if that correlation is far from perfect.”
