I've read many books and articles on publishing, so I go into every new material with a raised eye brow. There is SO much bad, misleading, and unhelpful information on this topic that it leads many authors down the wrong path. NOT SO WITH THIS! This was a thorough, entertaining, and intriguing book/class on the publishing industry. Jane is AWESOME! she does a great job being unbiased in giving information about trade publishing and self publishing. This information she gives is accurate and up-to-date and she gives it in an energetic and encouraging way. I HIGHLY recommend this book for writers in all ends of the spectrum of publishing. I for one am inspired and encouraged to keep writing. This is one of the best investments I made for my career. Check it out for yourself.

What did you love best about How to Publish Your Book?
I work with authors every day, plus I teach a quarterly course called "How to Publish Your Book" which is only 3 hours -- so I frequently recommend books for them to read. This is my new "go-to" book. Excellent content, not stuffy or favoring one method over another, and comprehensive but not too much to consume. Great job!
What other book might you compare How to Publish Your Book to and why?
Truthfully, I've read nearly everything on this subject because it is what I do every day. Not only is this one more comprehensive, but it is well written. I can't compare it to one book because it covers so many books.
Have you listened to any of Professor Jane Friedman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
There was no way to listen to it in one sitting -- however, I was driving many times while listening and she said something I wanted to write down. There were many instances where I thought "I wish there was a reference sheet" or some other way to get her suggestions on paper so I could remember to read. I was so pleased when I saw that a download of the printed book came with the purchase. Well cone!
Any additional comments?
I love her tone of voice in this audiobook -- it's very personal and personable. High marks Professor! Also, it was very up to date compared to many of these books. And she never once recommended that someone could write a book in 3 days or some other crazy idea like so many books do today.

Any additional comments?
If you're a newbie and need to fake it till you make it, this course will help. One of my favourites in the series. Got quite a few but never manage to finish them. Nearly done with this one and planning to listen a second time

I shudder to think that I might have ventured into the world of publishing without first reading Professor Friedman' s comprehensive 'how to' guide. Thank you sincerely. Nuala Macklin
