Doesn't seem to meet the WP:GNG, only sources are the Amazon page for the book (doesn't count) and a horribly written, mostly primary source press release. Specs112 t c 14:14, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

I disagree. Mrs/Miss Ackerman is a distinguished author who is well known in Southern Africa because of her work. True, the sources are somewhat limited but this is because the page is being worked on, and that takes time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hanji31 (talkcontribs) 15:13, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Delete. The Amazon page for the book doesn't confirm that this is a "best-seller" -- judging by the sales rank of the e-book version, apparently quite the opposite -- and reveals that it is self-published through CreateSpace. Self-publishing, in Wikipedia terms, doesn't confer notability independently, and I could find nothing in the way of references to this book by any arm's-length third-party expert sources. I was surprised, because the subject matter seems contentious, to say the least, but there you have it. Ubelowme (talk) 17:18, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
