Format: Paperback
I bought this book having read the recommendation of other reviewers but failed to note that most were based in the USA or outside UK. The book contains much that is useful general background about POD systems and many of the business tips are applicable in a general sense. However, it is written specifically for an American audience using the US publishing system. All of the links and references are for US users. That said, this is a clearly written, snappy guide to the ins and outs of POD.

This is a second edition of the book, published in the US but printed by Lightning Source UK Ltd, the UK arm of an international POD printing company. There might have been a missed opportunity for that UK business to work with the publishers to produce a UK-specific book?

I have been pondering about whether to buy this book for a long time. The foner books website gives lots of useful information, that I have read over and over again; so I thought it was time I bought the book. This is an ideal book for anyone who is thinking of self publishing, while restricting the risk, or for anyone who likes the idea of setting up a publishing company.
Very well written, clear and concise, the writer puts a very compelling case for the Print On Demand business model.
I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in this field.

In these days of saving the environment, we must all do our bit. I have done mine by saving several trees' worth of stamps thanks to Morris Rosenthal's 'Print on Demand Book Publishing'.

Print on Demand (POD); only print a book if someone demands it.

POD means no more posting hundreds of copies of your manuscript to hard-boiled agents, no more giving your long-suffering postie a sore back and laying waste to acres of forest only for the jaded publishers to drop it into their wastepaper bins because they did not see a bestseller after two pages. With POD you can bypass the industry, produce and publish your book, show it to the world and let the public decide for themselves. As Shakespeare nearly soliliquised, to buy or not to buy.

Print on Demand. What an idea! How simple, how obvious, how come?

This is where Morris Rosenthal comes in. 'POD Book Publishing' tells you not only that it can be done, but that it can be done by you. And how to go about it.

In straightforward approachable English, Morris demonstrates that POD is the future of publishing. Soon people will marvel that publishers once spent a fortune producing thousands of books to clutter up their warehouses while rejecting most of their potential clients.

This is a practical manual and Morris shows you how to turn your writing dreams into reality. Starting with nothing but your work and ambition, you can make it real.

Before I discovered Morris's book I was just another author wannaby, hoping that if I sacrificed enough trees to make stamps and manuscripts, a publisher might recognise my genius and make with the contract. Me and a million others. Maybe, I thought, if I rework the opening chapters a few more times It will persuade a drowning agent to clutch at it.

Before I read this book, I had already published three books. When I saw that Steve Weber recommended it, I had to see why. The book contains so much information about POD publishing, and the author writes about it as a business. He gives you a case study of one of his books. If you're not interested in the business part of writing books or if you don't like math, you probably won't like this book.

The author first starts out with the basics of publishing. He explains how trade publishing works, and eventually moves on to POD publishing. One of his best tips is to have a subtitle that "describes" what the book is about. Being creative with a subtitle will backfire on you. Most POD published books are pushed with Internet marketing. So a detailed subtitle makes the book more findable.

Rosenthal explains that your website should not be an advertisement to anything. I agree. Nobody wants to read an ad. You're better off giving excerpts of your book for free on your website.

One thing that could've made this book better is how to format your book in MS Word. Although he does recommend Aaron Shepard's "Perfect Pages."
