I have a number of books that need to be reviewed. If you have interest and some knowledge in the topic, let me know. I will send you the book — which you will be able to keep — and expect in return a review for the Newsletter. If you think you might like to review a book, but need more information, just go to the web site of the publisher or a web book seller to see more book detail. 


Below are some of the books I'd appreciate help reviewing.  If interested, Please email me at logorman@avaya.com,
