Example:

To Travis Everett, Internet guru and writer: Such a wonderful addition to the team this go-round, not just as a top-notch editor, but as a contributor as well. Your understanding of the Internet and the Cloud added excellent additions to the book. Looking forward to the next one to see what other talents you bring to the table!

What exactly does that mean?

    This is pretty common. Have you done any research? Consider that "round" may be alternated with "around". – Catija Feb 9 '17 at 20:48

  • @NathanTuggy My virus detector (Avast) gave me a warning concerning that link. I just visited again (dictionary.com is a reputable site), and there was no complaint. Unsure what that signifies, but it seemed like I should say something. – RichF Feb 9 '17 at 21:29

go round

does not mean "look around" or "going around" to different places, it means

this time around

I have more often encountered this saying in BrE where the expression

have a go

means to try to do something.

The book you reference is in its 6th edition, meaning it has been editted and reedited 6 times, it has had 6 "rounds" of releases, this latest "round" (this go round) includes Travis Everett.

A hint as to what it means s in the last sentence if the passage you have quoted "Looking forward to the next one to see what other talents you bring to the table!", for the next go round.
