Deleting a book menu item design

Visit Site - Edit Site - Delete Book

From passive to lethal options. I wonder if delete book is just too conveniently placed with options that are less volatile for book site admins?
I could understand deleting a book in a sub window in Tools or Settings, but up front could be a distracting and unnecessary danger?

We spent a great deal of time on this question. There’s no risk of accidental deletion because when you click “Delete Book” you are taken to this form, and once you’ve filled it out you have to click a link in an email before the book is actually deleted. Even then it’s only marked as deleted so a network administrator can recover it if needed.

Personally I would prefer to hide this from end-users as is is not relevant for them and will add more confusion than clarity to the workflows for open e-textbooks.
