Let me not take from someone who will not give.

I know now that this is no way to live.

Let me not give to someone who will not take.

I know that life is too short for his and my sake.

Very poignant poem

Thank you Allen. I have enjoyed much of your work here over the years.

I notice that your ThinkerMedia book has gone from Amazon (see Here). The same has happened to mine. I have sought an explanation but none has been forthcoming so far. I wonder if you might be able to shed light on the issue? May I ask, have you had any kind of explanation as to what ThinkerMedia intends to do or not do with our e-books now?

Bob to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
