I used an older edition of this book and have just updating to this new edition. Really valuable - clear and concise information. The stuff on marketing to librarians and email marketing is particularly useful for me. Should be on shelf (or on the desk!) in every publishing company marketing dept.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book as it was recommended by my marketing lecturer (I study publishing at Master's level). I had never done anything marketing-related and found this book helpful and pleasant to read.
The writing is neither stuffy nor academic but very informative. Baverstock is also a fairly humorous writer (as humorous as one can be when talking about marketing...).

Recommended by most of my coursemates and lecturers :D

"How to Market Books" lives up to the title. Baverstock is the authority on publishing marketing, and this is the "bible" of book marketing texts. The second-hand copy I bought was in such mint condition that it might as well have been new.How to Market Books: The Essential Guide to Maximizing Profit and Exploiting All Channels to Market

Well laid out and written in easy to understand English, this book is ideal as a learning resource or a quick reference guide. Now that I have a copy it will become well used within months. As a first-time publishing marketeer it has been one of the most valuable aspects of my induction.
