    Minnie,

    dedicated to
    -means the author usually names this person/these people in the first fewpages of their work.

    I have not encountered centered on before, are you confusing "featuring"?

    Re: dedicate to/ centre on

    no I am not.......I thought it could be possible to say " a book centered on".............I actually mean "it is the first biographical book about KK" (in the sense that in the book, which is the very 1st one ever written, tells about the life of KK"

    Re: dedicate to/ centre on

    I would then write "It is the first biography in print featuring KK"

    Re: dedicate to/ centre on

    I didn't know I could use "featuring" for a book
    and I didn't know I couls say "the first biography in print!"

    One more thing: is it possible to say "the very first biographical book of KK"?

    thanks
