    I hope you realize that you'll face plenty of competition from established authors who've been writing textbooks for decades.

    Nobody will buy a text "writed" by someone who is not an expert in the field.

    As was said in a previous thread of yours:

    This was good advice.

    ricky33, if you want to write a textbook then you need to seriously improve your writing. Regardless of the content, you will need to learn to write like a professional.

    I recommend that you take this up at a writer's forum, not here. Thread closed.
