Product Description

Review

'Every academic serious about getting published will benefit from reading this succinct yet highly accomplished guide. Brimming with invaluable insights from publishing, as well as containing plenty of practical writing tips and strategies, this book will be indispensable whether you're a first-time author or seasoned pro.' Alexandra Webster, Associate Director, Palgrave

'A very useful and thorough book that will certainly help me and fellow PhD students: the book demystifies publishing of academic books, especially those based on dissertations.' Lisa Mueller, University of Zurich

'Readable, clear and useful, Writing Successful Academic Books is an interesting, accessible and enlightening book for anyone wanting to publish, particularly for academics. In a wonderful position to write such a book, Haynes does it comprehensively, including information and advice that is not common knowledge and often not divulged. A must read for anyone considering publishing an academic book!' Rachel L. Hardy-Holbrook, University of Warwick

'Anthony Haynes, editor and (successful) author, has a refreshing approach to academic writing that includes new ideas and new points of view. The dissertation-to-monograph transition has already been covered in so many similar guides, but Haynes presents ideas on key processes - reducing or omitting, adding, changing and deliberating - that make excellent reading.' Learned Publishing

Book Description

This practical guide covers all stages of academic authorship from developing the initial idea for a book through to post-publication, showing how to avoid common pitfalls. Full of real examples, including a sample book proposal, the book covers everything you need to know to build up a successful publication record.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Rae Fisher on 11 May 2010
Format: Paperback
I approached this book as an author of several academic books who is half way through writing another. I wondered if I had much to learn. In fact, I learned a huge amount.
The book is comprehensive and systematic, written by someone who is evidently thoroughly experienced in the realms of writing, editing and publishing. It is engagingly written, bursting with good ideas, information and practicable suggestions, and it is well-organised. Each chapter concludes with a summary of its main points. No writer of an academic book should begin his or her task without first reading this book.

Format: Paperback
I found this book really useful. It is clearly written, an easy and pleasant read, it gives plenty of practical advice that can readily be applied. I have used this book for writing a book proposal, and it's been immensely helpful. I highly recommend this book to anyone involved in academic writing.

The book is very easy to read, very clear and to the point.
I haven't finished it yet and I think it gives you quite good points about the process of writing.
