There are quite a few of you who have expressed some interest in consulting. You may be interested to know that I will be writing a new book this year on technical consulting. My outline is complete and is currently being reviewed by Cisco Press. As soon as the particulars are hammered out, we will be striving to complete the 20 or so chapters in less than 2 months.
Of course, the post production process will take much longer than that - edits, rewrites, proofreading, copyediting, layout, etc. Don't expect the new title's release until the end of 2005 - at the earliest.
