Matt, Marks book includes a longish section noting the runarounds he was subjected to (despite support at the general officer level, if memory serves) in getting approval to publish. You might not like the original phrasing (mine), but the account is notable and important, in my view. It's Kafka, I tell you, Kafka! ww 17:37, 21 Jun 2004 (UTC)
I don't suppose you could have a glance through and try and find a quote? We probably need to be neutral in tone when discussing any opposition Marks may have had in publishing, but it's quite appropriate to include any acerbic comments as quotes... — Matt 17:44, 21 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Matt, Regrettably, I don't have my copy available. In some box somewhere. Can we put out a general call? ww 18:59, 21 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Sure. If we don't get anyone, I'm going near a bookshop which I know has it sometime during the week, and I can look it up (I might even buy it if I'm feeling wealthy...) — Matt 19:13, 21 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Most of the info in this article seems to come from Marks' own entertaining but somewhat self-inflating book. I've wondered for a while how much of it is corroborated elsewhere.
--just read it and ditto. The book is a fabulous read, and the article is a good synopsis of the book. Needs more sources. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:09, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
