HOW ACCURATE ARE BOOKS?
Book publishers are in the main, first and foremost business people. They publish books in order to make profit; so what they choose to print and the accuracy of what is written can vary according to funds available, the budget for editing, and of course the author.
Do not assume something is accurate and up to date because it is in a book!
Authors and publishers are (at the end of the day) human beings; and can make innocent mistakes, just like everyone else.
Books that are recommended by credible academics are always more likely to be reliable.
Books in college & school bookshops are often sourced and recommended by expert academics who teach those disciplines (eg. See www.acsbookshop.com )
