Books reviews
This book contains a lot of information that is hard to find anywhere else, including the cost breakdown of a typical book, and how the industry really works.

I really interesting read if you have any interest in the publishing industry.
Excellent book, but beware US readers: The book is written from a UK-centric perspective. If US readers want a basic intro to book publishing, this is probably not the book for you.
