Authors often seek the advice of colleagues when writing. December author Sundar Madihally explains his own process:
I have read a few tips from some of the popular textbook authors. For my first edition, that served as the guideline for the writing process. Many example problems are generated when I teach the class, particularly addressing some students’ curiosity. Many times, I come across articles when I review literature either for writing my research articles, reviewing a submitted article, or reviewing proposals. I also solicit feedback from my students every time I teach and anyone who uses the book in their course. For example, Dr. William Pitt at Brigham Young University used the book and constantly gave feedback from the first edition. I am very much appreciative of his efforts in helping this new edition. As they read the book, I would ask others to provide similar feedback so that we could have a comprehensive textbook that future generations can use. If there are errors or other concepts, please send them to me.
