The Complete Cortada

Ever since meeting Jim Cortada during my transition to CBI in 2006 and hearing of his unusual publication record, I have been curious about how many books he actually has published over the years.  A family get-together for his recent 70th birthday prompted me to aim at a definitive number and complete list of titles.

So I looked up “James W. Cortada” on the readily available WORLDCAT website . . . Set aside electronic editions of regularly published book as well as articles and chapters . . . Retained translations of books into Chinese and Spanish and Portuguese . . . . Here are the results.
