'It is, and was in its earlier incarnations, a valuable and thorough guide to all the aspects of publishing editors and their staff should know about [...] For students this book offers a readable introduction to the industry so it should definitely be stocked by every library where magazine journalism and publishing is taught.' - Journal of the Association for Journalism Education, Issue 2-1, May 2013
Praise for the second edition:
'Editing has always been a dark art, part both sides of the brain and part gut - and this excellent and thorough book lets light into every conceivable corner including some pretty murky ones. Above all it carries a torch for the blindingly obvious but oft forgotten truth - cherish and serve your readers and won't go far wrong.' Nicholas Brett, Deputy Managing Director, BBC Magazines, and former editor of Radio Times
