The Publishing Business provides an excellent introduction to contemporary publishing. It is recommended reading for anyone wanting up-to-date information about roles and responsibilities in this global industry. -- Sally Hughes, Oxford Brookes University, UK
Beautifully produced and illustrated, The Publishing Business provides a clear and succinct overview of what it means to be a publisher in an era of rapid technological change. The use of diagrams and case studies helps to convey complex information in a clear and meaningful way. A useful reference guide for publishing professionals. -- Penelope Woolf, Editorial Director, Oxford University Press, UK
I think the book is superb! It looks so much better than any existing textbook on the subject, and practises what it preaches: it is a real visual feast for a visual medium. I shall definitely be recommending it as the main source that students need for their course. A really great production feat! -- Brenda Stones, City University, London
The Publishing Business represents not only a thoroughly researched and comprehensive guide to contemporary publishing but also an example of what a well designed and accessible textbook should be. -- Prof Alistair McCleery, Edinburgh Napier University
A book that addresses the editorial process in a clear, concise, summarized and instructive way is most refreshing. * Blog of the School of Bookstore *
