Searching individually for each of the above authors and for books they co-wrote reveals a myriad of Goodreads book entries that require metadata cleanup. For example, sometimes one or more of the authors' middle initials are included/sometimes they're excluded. Same thing for periods after the middle initial. Additionally, some entries include all of the authors in the author fields, some include a subset of the authors in the author fields, and many list the authors in the wrong order.

Once those metadata errors are corrected, then the textbooks that need to be merged can be merged.
