Self Publishing or Packt Publishing?

July 2012 | e-Learning, Enterprise, Open Source

Publishing a book, on your own or through a publisher, is a lot of work!

While it is true that with self-publishing, one can get their books done and in the market in a relatively shorter span of time and have more control over the content of the book, just writing the book, formatting it, and launching it in the market is not what makes a great book or a great author.

When it comes to a good IT book, the content of the book, planning, editing, designing, art directing (cover art, graphics, and layout), copy editing, production management, distributing, actual selling, marketing/promoting, and publicizing, are all matters of great importance. This is where Packt comes in. Packt Publishing provides books, eBooks, video tutorials, and articles for IT developers, administrators, and users.
