They should have a proper registration process and always show the reviewers
name.  I've had some stupid reviews for Beginning ASP components, Pro XML
and various other titles that I'd rather delete ( some are 5 stars ).

Do people care how many people write a book ? I dont think so.  Everything
else in the world ( techologies, standards etc etc) aren't written by one
person so why should books be any different ?  Whats important is that you
get a book when you need it, it contains content that addresses your
problems, and that it is co-ordinated.

I'd go for the opposite, death to all tradional publishers, long live
e-publishers ;) ;)
