Very informative, however. Needs to have layout changed to accommodate successful learning.

A not-overly-technical, but complete book, an important to guide self-publishers on how to understand and produce books that sell. Too many self-publishers fail to realize the value of book design and lay-out--where and how print is placed on book pages. The right type, page design and ink add to a books appeal to buyers.
Hundreds of types exist. Choosing the right one enhances legibility and enjoyment for book buyers.
An excellent book. Novice writers need to especially understand the concepts in this book.
