A very pragmatic and detailed book on the subject

I've read or listened to over 10 books on writing (or related things like screenwriting and storytelling) for the last year. I really liked the fact that this specific book is detailed and talks about very precise things, such as what are core things to have on your website, or what's in a book contract.

Beyond Expectation Amazing!

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.

Hands down - Fabulous

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.

Informative, helpful

What about Professor Jane Friedman’s performance did you like?

Professor Friedman does a good job guiding one through the ins and outs of publishing.Sometimes disappointingly realistic, she nevertheless offers encouragement and a clear roadmap.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from How to Publish Your Book?

Spend more time preparing.

Any additional comments?

Her tendency to end sentences with a questioning tone was a bit distracting.

Touches all the bases on Print, bit less w/E-books

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I found the speaker to be effective and that she conveyed emphasis and opinion where needed.

What other book might you compare How to Publish Your Book to and why?

Comparable in quality to others in the Great Courses series.

What about Professor Jane Friedman’s performance did you like?

Depth of knowledge which includes dos as well as don'ts.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

No one thing in particular, rather - that the entire process is quite a bit more complicated than I had envisioned. I feel like I have a better chance of creating and publishing both print books and e-books after hearing these lectures.

Any additional comments?

Great stuff. Thank you.

Excellent

Really good review of trad publishing. If you're looking at self-pub, this probably isn't what you're interested in. It has a good mix of fiction and non fiction tips, and I really enjoyed listening to this.

Absolutely Fantastic

I have read so many books on how to publish my book but this one goes into great detail on every process. It has been so incredibly helpful and current since it was written recently. Everyone really must buy this book if they can't decide on self publishing or traditional publishing.

amazing information!!!

24 lectures seemed really daunting, then it passed by so fast that I'm surprised it's already over. I'll definitely be listening to this multiple times

title was misleading

I can appreciate the information, however the title was misleading. it should have been titles " How to get your book published " instead. only the last 3 chapters spoke on self publishing. I was under the impression that this course was about publishing.

I wish she had hired a narrator

Any additional comments?

The information in this book is excellent; well researched and structured. Narration is poor; halting speech, lengthy odd pauses, amateur production. The author appears to find herself very entertaining, with odd chuckles interspersed.

It isn't amusing. I recommend the print copy of this book for reference.

The Real Deal

This is the true insiders view to the whole publishing system, from A-Z. I think all writers wanting to publish a book, but for the very most published of authors, would benefit from listening to this. Yes, if you are in it for the business, there will be some things you know, but there will be much you learn.
