I personally have to agree with the comments on the back cover (shown above). This is a quirky topic with much detail about various small publishers as described in this book. I found it a bit hard to read, as a novice on the subject matter. There is a lot of technical information crammed into a few chapters. I found it interesting but dry reading.
