Impressed by how many listings this had that weren't in the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook -- definitely worth buying both!

Quite helpful for what I wanted which was short story publishers, but probably 90% of its content will not be applicable to me.

Very disappointing indeed.

Having read the other reviews here, insisting that it is very comprehensive, I was surprised that - in the areas I know about best as a professional book editor, which are politics, philosophy and social science - there are many important publishers missing from its listings: Polity, Zed, Verso (the "largest independent, radical publishing house in the English-speaking world"), Routledge (Roudledge!!?), Edinburgh University Press, Acumen... I could go on and on. Most of the publishers I've looked for in the listing AREN'T THERE.

This is essentially a glorified Yellow Pages for writers - and I don't mean that dismissively; it's very useful to have that sort of resource in one up-to-date volume. But what possible use is such a book when half (or more) of the relevant listings are missing! It's possible that it has a bias against academic publishing - though no such warning appears on the back cover; or it's possible that the listings are just as inadequate for the areas I don't know so much about as the ones I do.

The blurb's reassurance that there are "no obscure listings padding out hundreds of pages" really won't do. What possible standard of usefulness will include, for example, Logaston Press ("Publishes biographies and books on the rural West Midlands and mid and South Wales...") while omitting Routledge and the Edinburgh University Press - and, I've just noticed, Penguin! PENGUIN!!! Nothing against Logaston, by the way - I wish them well. But the only reason I can think of for such a bizarre set of choices is that publishers were charged to have their details included, and many or most declined to play ball. That's pure speculation on my part; but the alternatives - sloppiness and laziness - are even worse.
