Review:

Publishing for Profit is a great book. It sits on my nightstand. I often pick it up and read parts of it again.”  —Rod Colvin, president, Addicus Books "A remarkable book and a must-have volume for anyone interested in the business end of book publishing. Everyone in the book publishing business should have a well-thumbed copy on their desk."  —David M. Hetherington, adjunct professor, Pace University, Graduate School of Publishing
"Publishing for Profit was immensely useful in helping me understand some of the subtler business challenges of a small press . . . Your advice is practical and immediately applicable."  —Perry Donham, president, KidPub Press


"Publishing for Profit is practical and laser-sharp. Whereas many business books are broad in applicability, this book is specifically about publishing. It is an essential reference for small and large publishers alike." —Angela Bole, IBPA Executive Director

"The bible of the industry." —Associated Press


"One of the best references available today . . . providing a solid foundation and answering every question." —Jan Nathan, former executive director, Publishing Marketing Association


"Solid nuts-and-bolts advice for everyone who wants to run a publishing business, no matter how large or small. Forms and illustrations help make this manual crystal clear." —Judith Applebaum, author of How to Get Happily Published
“As long as publishers and authors follow the steps in Woll’s book, the future [of book publishing] could be bright.” —Book Marketing Buzz Blog
