Academics telling it like it is

"Sales of network analysis textbooks have increased: an almost unheard-of occurrence for academic texts (whose sales tend to hit zero several years after publication). It has been 10 years since the publication of the leading text in the area [of network analysis...] and almost 15 years since work on it began. It is remarkable not only that it is still in print, but also that increasing numbers of people are buying it, maybe even looking at parts of it."

- Carrington et al, Models and Methods in Social Network Analysis

I totally intend to look at parts of the abovementioned book.
