Sane rants on an insane world. Read at your own risk. Don't blame me if your head explodes.
Are your royalties worth the effort?
What royalties? I just upload the document as a .pdf file to my class websites. Most textbooks out there are total crap. I've only found one that was worth the money. Not to mention, they tilt so far to the political left that they make the Leaning Tower of Pisa look vertical. Mine is politically neutral--I will not be party to brainwashing my students.Besides, the effort I put in now is much, much less than I'd put in explaining the same things over and over and over, sometimes to the same student.
