GREAT NEWS ON "WHY JOHNNY CAN'T THINK!" | 2004-07-03

All about my book is at

We have a TEAM!

A lot of people look at the list o things I have done in my life and wonder how how one man could do all that.

One many DIDN'T do all that. I am good at team play.

When I find competent, dedicated, intelligent people I don't just "delegate" authority to them, I DUMP authority ON them.

This requires something which is a theme of whitakeronline.ORG. When you delegated authority you are taking a risk. To take that risk requires MORAL courage.

In my case the moral courage is somewhat less because I know that the chances are better that I will screw things up than that the people I delegate authority. But let's ignore that and say Old Bob is just very, very brave.

I told you before that I did two books before for major publishers, one of which was used as a textbook in private schools. But a month after a publisher had signed up to take "Why Johnny Can't Think: America's Professor-Priesthood," they said that not only were they backing out of the contract, they were destroying all correspondence relating to it!

Straight out of George Orwell!

I have never had such a thing happen to me. In fact, I have never even HEARD of such a thing happening to any writer.

So there was only me and my editor-agent to do the book ourselves.

The my editor-agent got sent to Iraq!

I was tired and I was alone.

But the book has sold a few copies on Amazon.com and on special order from book stores and a team of intelligent people has taken it over for me, every one of them an unpaid volunteer.

We now have the final proofs in and a new printing of 3,000 copies is on schedule for July 15 or thereabouts. Then we can really offer some good deals on the book. The copy-by-copy publishing we had to resort to before was very expensive, but now we can really get started, offering 100 copies for $200, including shipping AT FIRST so groups can sell it at a profit.

If groups make money selling "Why Johnny Can't Think: America's Professor-Priesthood," which costs about $12 right now including shipping, I would be delighted.

Whitakeronline readers are spending a lot more than $200 a year right now in taxes on the professor-priesthood that I am trying to destroy, much less on the social programs they cause, so you could do me a big favor by buying a hundred and handing them out. There is more on this below.

Private schoolers and home schoolers face a serious problem when they leave home and are subject to the leftist professors at the universities. This book was written to solve that problem. If they read it they can not only deal with leftist professors and students, they can make life a living hell for them by laughing them out of existence.

I WAS a professor. All students love to ridicule professors, and after reading "Why Johnny Can't Thin," a student can lead the laughter in the dormitories.

For home schoolers, this little book is not just a defense. It is a WEAPON..
