I noticed that some scholars in my field are best known for their earliest writing, even if their ideas were later found incorrect.
I am writing a book in my area of interest and hope to publish within a year. The target audience is not academics, but practitioners, although I suspect academics would be the first to seek out a book of this kind.
Year by year, my understanding of the subject matter grows, through reading and experience. It is highly likely that in a few years time I will realize I made many mistakes in the book. Perhaps, for example, I was not aware that some of my described solutions to problems in the field did not actually work as well as I thought they did.
If I later started a PhD in the same area, would such a past publication create problems for an academic career?
