Ouch! I do not know Margaret personally, but John Levine has been
a longtime member of our community of list managers, and has provided
valuable advice and resources over the years.
News about books by our members, pertaining to list management, are
certainly welcome on List-Managers. If your NerdNosh book is about
list management (or reasonably related topics), by all means feel
free to tell us about it here!
In neither case does that mean posting a message every week on how to
buy it, but announcements, discussion, solicitation of comments, etc.,
are certainly appropriate for List-Managers.
