There is no way I can be unbiased. A friend co-wrote it, I know one of the other co-authors, and there's four --- yes four --- quotes from me in the book (must say, interesting choice Susannah!!! one's almost an essay!!!!!!). Glad to know my 20 year career in the book industry came in handy for something.... :)

You want a job in publishing, read this. It will get you a foot in the door...
I really enjoyed this book and found if very insightful and interesting. It's written in a much chattier and easy style which makes it far easier to retain the information. As an undergraduate aspiring to a career in the publishing industry I found this book to be very helpful. I especially found the 'glossary of terms' to be great for picking up knowledge quickly. I know I will use this book frequently throughout my degree and recommend it to anyone in a similar position to me.
Very helpful and clear guide to beginning a career in publishing. Provides descriptions of the different job roles in publishing and the personality type each would suit. Contains helpful, practical advice on writing your CV, networking, interviews, and work experience. Excellent for absolute beginners - may be a bit too basic if you already have some experience/knowledge about publishing careers.
I enjoyed reading this book AND feel like I learned a lot from it. The authors come across as knowledgeable, opinionated, and kind - an awesome combination.
Book by my former lecturer, so I had to buy it
