I managed the first two on the list but the third, getting a book published, had eluded me. A few years ago, I was offered a joint authorship with another photographer to produce a ‘How To’ book. For various reasons (ego, stupidity, ignorance, etc.) I turned it down, which I have regretted ever since.
