"It's one of the few magazine-publishing texts that I've used in academia that also is beneficial to magazine-industry professionals. While the entire new edition remains an excellent tool, I think the authors' discussion of digital publishing, tablets and apps makes it especially current and significant, and the presentation of profitability tables and spreadsheets is also an important addition. The Magazine: From Cover to Cover is a special publication."- Frank Dexter Brown, editor-at-large, Prince George's Suite magazine, and the founding editor of YSB magazine, has taught for more than 20 years. He operates a media-consulting business in Washington, DC.
"In terms of scope and depth, no other textbook can hold a candle to The Magazine from Cover to Cover. The authors accurately and vividly describe how the industry is evolving in the digital age. It's the only book I'd recommend for a course on contemporary magazine publishing."-Jennifer Rauch, Long Island University
"If you are looking for a text that covers the magazine industry from start to finish, top to bottom, this is it."-Ana Garner, Marquette University
