Post the links to people who helped you write your book

Seth Godin (again) because he just keeps getting better. Today, he posts the links to the people who helped his write his new book, Linchpin.

Posting these links is a great idea in a number of ways.
- He recognizes the people who helped him.
- He helps readers of Linchpin (like me) track down sources of "further reading".
- It helps promote the book by spreading the meme.

I will do the same for my future books.

I feel like a biblical prophet in an MGM epic, only I'd be saying things to the crowd like "Go! Go forth, and do like Seth!" All I need is a robe and a staff. (Already got the beard.)
