"Every scholar who reads or writes professionally needs to read this book. Rick Anderson synthesizes a wide range of essential information and explains what everyone needs to know with insight and straightforward good sense."-- James R. Grossman, Executive Director of the American Historical Association and Associate Faculty in the Department of History at the University of Chicago

"Many people know Anderson for his regular contributions to The Scholarly Kitchen, the blog of the Society for Scholarly Publishing, and this book is a great companion to the blog. Anderson makes the point that scholarly communication is important to anyone concerned about politics, medical information, property values, and other everyday interests, as well as to academics and scholars. The book is thoughtful, easy to understand, and an interesting read. It offers an excellent overview of the opportunities and challenges associated with scholarly communication as well as future scenarios to envision and ponder."-- Lynn Silipigni Connaway, PhD, Senior Research Scientist & Director of User Research, OCLC Research
