Beginning the literature review

Before I dive fully into my project of writing a new non-fiction book, I must first review the literature to be sure what I plan to do hasn’t already been done.

Obviously, most subjects under the sun have been covered to some extent by previous books.  The question then becomes has the same subject matter been fully covered in a similar manner, and with my own unique perspective on the topic?

This has created a fascinating job for me, to look into most of the books that have been published in the past few years on finding love or dating later in life.  I’m finding this includes quite a lot of silly little books that are cute, but not particularly helpful.

So far, so good.   I think I may have an unique take on my topic, plus an extremely original voice to offer in this new enterprise!

NOTE:  This review eventually turned into: How To Believe In Love Again!
