Editorial Reviews

?It is a pleasure to read a book with a clearly stated point of view, and one that is written by an author who is in command of the subject matter and writes with a readable style. What is unique about this book in relation to similar, previously published titles, is the author's coupling of the mechanics of good academic writing with the "why's and wherefore's" of academic publishing.?-Publishing Research Quarterly
