Learn WHAT from Othniel Seiden?

Othniel Seiden is an apparently successful MD and author. He says he "did a year of graduate study at the University of Missouri School of Journalism," has been an "editorial and publication consultant," and "been both a book and magazine editor."

I think that experience would enable him to avoid the sloppy errors in the text below:

Let's talk about getting your book published. Do you need an agent, a synopsis, a query letter? What's the best way for you to get your book to your potential readers. [question mark] What about an editor? What about the binding? Art? Copy rights [one word] and publication rights. [question mark] What about contracts? There is a lot to think about and I've been there and done that. Learn form [from] my experiences and trial and error! I've had 40 books published by 9 different publishers, Google Othniel Seiden. Publishing has changed so much in the past 5 years that what was the only game in town 20 years, even 10 years ago, no longer holds true. It's never been easier to get published than today, but it's also easier to get taken by scammers. Let's discuss what to look out for and what's best for YOU! See you at the Arapahoe Public Library on Parker Rd and Florida at 1:30 to 3:30 October 30th. It's FREE!!!

Meet other hopeful writers and become a PUBLISHED AUTHOR within a year! Learn how to go from idea to researching and finding your reader market, establishing your writers [apostrophe missing] niche, to knowing your potential readers intimately, to getting your first draft finished in a hurry and finally getting it published. This group started by Othniel Seiden, author of over 30 published books. [or is it 40?]  See www.boomerbookseries.com or Amazon.com or Amazon Kindle or Google Books.com. If you're serious about becoming a published author [comma missing] this is your meetup! For both fiction and non-fiction writers. If I can write a publishable book [comma missing] anyone can!!!
