Becoming an Architect? 3rd Ed. - Need help!

I need your assistance!

Last week, I submitted a proposal for 3rd edition of Becoming an Architect to publisher, Wiley & Sons; I also talked with my editor who will submit to editorial team next week -- she is confident that it will be accepted.

Thus, for next 10 months, I am writing but I need your help.  Do you wish to be profiled if you are an architecture student, emerging professional or architect? or Do you have thoughts of what should be included in the next edition (see TOC below)?  If so, please contact me -
