/////Before you make any effort to publish this "book", it would be well to have it edited, not to mention, footnoted. Wow. Your errors, both grammatical and logical, permeate the entire work./////

My grammatical errors? Then you must be aware that the employment of phrases as "it would be well to have it edited" are the very example of bad grammar. You use the word "it" in two completely different ways in one phrase. Moreover, the first use of "it" constitutes what is known as the "vague pronoun" which you've heard of, no doubt. The "it" in question refers to nothing in particular. "it would be well to have it edited..." WHAT would be well to have it edited?

So unless your own grammar is flawless, I highly recommend not criticizing that of others. As for my errors in "logic", I'm equally sure your own logic is as flawless as your grammar.

Thank you for your input.
