|About the Book|
Philip M. Parker holds the INSEAD Chair Professorship of Management Science at INSEAD (Fontainebleau, France). He has patented a method to automatically produce a set of similar books from a template which is filled with data from database and internet searches. At Amazon.com, Parker is listed as the author of 85,000 books that his program created and overall he claims to have produced 200,000 different titles. All books are self-published paperbacks and are printed only when an order arrives. Ninety-five percent of the ordered books are sent out electronically.Parker has produced a series of cross-language dictionaries and thesauri, e.g. Websters Quechua - English Thesaurus Dictionary. Parkers methods of publishing dictionaries are considered unethical by many professional linguists and contain large amounts of error. Of particular concern is the fact that he fails to either acknowledge or reference his sources and leaves the impression that he has done the linguistic work to amass the dataParkers programs can also produce rudimentary poetry as well as scripts for animated game shows intended to teach English to non-native speakers and available on YouTube. He plans to extend the programs to produce romance novels.
