  • Delete. Advertising, not notable. See: a) Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not, point 18 and b) Wikipedia:Google test. The book does not exist yet. It will be released in November, 2004. Amazon says: "Availability: This item has not yet been released. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives." The article has no useful content other than promotion of the book. The timing of its placement, just prior to publication, suggests that the purpose of placing the article is promotional. No evidence is presented for notability, and since it has not been published we cannot easily check Amazon sales rank, read reviews, etc. Googling on exact phrase "Electronic Circuits for the Evil Genius" yields only 49 hits, virtually all simply to listings of the book at bookselling sites, publisher's site, etc. One curious reference is at [1] where he thanks a contributor for a pretty public-domain photograph of a stream, with no obvious connection to electronics, which he says he will use in his book.

  • Delete. Book is not even published yet, let alone notable. --Improv 22:05, 9 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Speedy delete. Unpublished book, not notable: advertising -- Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not, point 18 -- The Anome 22:08, 9 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Not notable, not out, seems to just be advertising. --Sparky the Seventh Chaos 22:22, Oct 9, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: Not published, not notable. When it becomes the new Anarchist Cookbook for the PATRIOT ACT world, we'll need an article. Not now. Geogre 00:56, 10 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Why is a forthcoming book on wikipedia?? --Viriditas 04:09, 10 Oct 2004 (UTC)
