The book is sectioned off into several parts, including a "How to...," agent listing, book publisher, article publishers, trade journals, conferences, and competitions. It is still a very useful tool to have, but you need to know going in that if you have a full manuscript that you want to get published, there are going to be fewer options for you to look at in the 2011 Writer's Market.
Here's the problem, in my opinion, with the 2011 edition - the section on actual book publishing companies is perhaps 10% of the book! The bulk of the book is actually dedicated to the magazines and trade journals. This is probably because book publishers are going out of business, but it was a shock to see how little of the Writer's Market is dedicated to them.
Also, if you buy this, you do not need to buy the 2011 Novels and Short Stories Writer's Market. The overlap between the two is too great to warrant buying both.
I found a huge number of typos, sometimes the same one over and over again. It seems like multiple people entered the listings and each one had a different way of formatting, so there is an inconsistency in the listings.
Under book publishers they say they don't list subsidy publishers and to let them know if anyone asks for money, yet one of the listings (which offers to write, illustrate and publish a book with your message) is just that.
Insufficient or incorrect contact information. For example one listing said to only contact the editor through email but didn't give an email address.
I'm hoping they accidentally published an early draft and that the quality hasn't really dropped to such a low level. I'm not sure how reliable the listings are with all these errors, so I think I will be returning my copy.
Decades ago, everything you ever needed was in this one book. Now I have to buy separate books for different purposes like Poets Market. However, I still use this as my main source. There are grey tabs to tell you what section of the book you are reading. The last page has a legend on reading listings. Be careful you might accidentally find something to subscribe to.
I would describe the book in more detail except most people already know the details from older versions. If you ever start to make money you can write the price of this book off on your taxes.
