Just happened to see this, this morning — since I do not check Amazon U.K. listings of my books that often.
As I said previously this is why I write books — because I do NOT make any money from them. Purely a hobby.
I think every author, who has written more than one book, knows deep down which of those books is the best one he has written.
For the longest time I knew that my first book, written in 1983 (and published in 1984), “SNA: Theory and Practice” was the best book I had written.
Writing that book was magical. I was 30 years old and my semi-photographic memory was at its peak. I wrote that book, which is very technical,
basically from memory and definitely indexed it from memory. I did not use a computer. I wrote it longhand by pencil. It is 550 page book!
But, I now know that “The Next Pope: 2011” is now my Magnum opus. It is THE book that I want to be remembered for.
Looking back I can’t actually believe that I wrote it. I amazed myself. The research that I did for that book was
beyond painstaking and extensive. Four years later I think back and go: ‘Wow, I did all that?‘
It is an amazing feeling.
