5.0 out of 5 stars This book saved me, 2 Mar 2009
J. R. Szmigin "Jan" (Worcester, UK) - See all my reviews
This is a true story. The editor of a magazine I publish, gave notice they were going to quit. For various reasons I could not find a replacement easily, time was running out, and it dawned on me that my only option was to become the editor myself, but I had never done it before (I had been looking after the accounting and admin!). I ordered this book, and started to read, taking copious notes, letting each chapter sink in, and re-reading the tough bits. I must admit that, at the time, I was terrified.
Yet, armed with the knowledge from this book, I did take the reins at the editor's desk, even though some people then gave me only three months before I'd give up. Now, eighteen months later, I have been publishing my 44-page financial magazine month-in, month-out without any problems. Of course, there are things you learn on the job, but mainly things specific to your own readers, while the lessons learned from the book have always remained relevant.
