Would you pay money for your own work?
Are you honest enough with yourself to answer that question?
I like to think that I would buy most of what I've written, if it were by someone else. But not everything--not books on subjects I didn't select. But yeah, everything else I believe is good enough that if I found it with someone else's name on it I'd be interested in reading it. (And I'm darned glad I wrote some of my older telecomputing books. Not only did they make a lot of money, but I also find myself using them as references today, two decades later!)
