Although some of the info is slightly out of date, such as the fluidity of the publishing industry these days, this book is an excellent and informative resource. The author covers everything an author or potential author needs to know. My only problem was that self publishing is only briefly mentioned, which has come a long way in just the last few years, and was still in infancy when the book was published just a decade ago.
