Who's the Author?
Can you trust this person?
Does the author have the credentials to write on this subject? Here are some tips for tracking down author information:
- Check the dust sleeve (the book's paper cover). If the book doesn't have a dust sleeve, look up the book title in Google Books and see if there's an image of the back cover.
- Look for the author's credentials somewhere in the book.
- Look up the author in the library book catalog to see what else she or he has written.
- Look up the author's name in Google Books to see what else he or she has written, and what other books mention this author.
