I think that changing your signature Ron is a great idea. That will retroactively change all your posts (ever) to have that signature.
Marketing is so important and I'll 2nd that so far, your book remains somewhat on the DL (down-low for all those over 30... :p).
This might be a long-shot, but how often does a book on Emulsion making come out?? Imagine if the Brit. J. of Phot. did a story on it. Have you considered a "press-release" of sorts?, as silly as that may sound.
PF doesn't even say the name of the author. Wow. The description is just the table of contents, which is really not the space or place to present this. This is where the sell should be happening. I'd be more than happy to draft something up if you're interested.
I want the ball to start rolling for this book, and I think we need to start kicking it around!

A little bit more information with a real photograph at the ads would not hurt anyone and may be an bikini woman with a glass rod in her hand :)
Saying I love glass rods especially Rons :))

Sounds like some people are jealous, for what reason, who knows. The majority respect your knowledge and experience, and are smart enough to learn from it. That is what counts. Keep up the good work.
I agree. As an engineer with 50 years experience, I fine that several industries that make similar products use similar methods. Everyone just gravitates to what ever works best, and keep learning at trade shows, industry groups (like SAE) etc. To say you're forcing the "Kodak Way" down ones throat is ludicrous. Nobody's forcing anyone to buy your book or use your methods.
As fotch said, "keep up the good work"! We enjoy and learn from your posts.
