follow through with/on doing sth
I definitely heard, 'He didn't follow through on writing the book' but the entry from the OALD has only this, follow through with doing sth.
Are they both correct? Any guess why the OALD is missing 'follow through on'?

Re: follow through with/on doing sth
I think that the norm is to use "follow through with" or "follow up on". They don't mean the same thing, of course.
