"Lepionka examines the steps that need to be taken to publish a textbook. Assuming that her readers are experts in their fields but novices in the field of publishing, she reviews the publishing process and takes them step by step through the process of writing and publishing a textbook, including how to get a manuscript accepted by a publisher. Chapters treat a variety of topics, e.g., copyright permission, chapter assignment, pedagogy and text development, revising, image selection, and schedule management. Lepionka includes a detailed glossary of publishing terms and a bibliography listing books, Web sites, and periodicals useful in writing and publishing textbooks. Although at points the writing is technical (and needs to be), the book is well laid out and easy to follow."

"Very professional. There aren't many books about textbooks and the ones that do exist tend to be rather theoretical. This one is very practical. You can tell it isn't written by a hack: the book is full of concrete details based on experience. As a textbook publisher myself, I feel confident in saying that no prospective textbook authors could read this without profit - and I doubt any experienced authors could either."
