The first part of this article reads like a resume. The main body after the ToC seems like blatant adds for his books. — John Cardinal (talk) 05:19, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
Do you have suggestions or just criticisms? The man is an author ... it seems logical that a list of his works would be included. Tschroeder250 (talk) 05:56, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
The list of books includes the sort of promotional prose one would normally find on the back of the book itself, and in fact, I would not be surprised if it was copied from there (WP:COPYVIO?). The blurbs are all positive, including words like "excellent" and phrases like "sure to be influential", unsourced and unbalanced by any criticism. They should be removed and replaced by commentary from reliable sources. Some of the review links go to book store pages that are labeled as reviews but are just sales blurbs. All such links should be removed from the article.
This article has a lot of problems. You can reject the criticism if you want, or you can try to improve it. Overall, this page seems like a promotional vehicle for the author rather than an encyclopedic description of him and his work. — John Cardinal (talk) 14:05, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
External links within body of "Other Activities"
I added external links within the body of the Other Activities section for organizations that did not have a Wiki page (and used internal linking for those that did) in the 18:48, 19 January 2011 revision, but have since moved the external links to the External links section (as seen in the 20:32, 19 January 2011 revision) because I was not certain whether it was appropriate to have the external links in the body of the article. I looked over the External Links Wiki page for guidance but I still am not entirely sure whether it's okay to have any external links within the body of an article. Any advice on this from looking at the two revisions? Slowarithmetic (talk) 20:35, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
