comment:
"While many other publication address the problems of developing local private publishing from a commercial and professional point of view, this guide is specifically designed for the purpose of creating a sustainable and affordable system for the provision of good quality learning materials for schools and non-formal education programmes. It describes how the supply of books to schools is related to various other publishing requirements, shows how real problems in book provision can be identified and suggests strategies for dealing with them." (executive summary, p. 10)
 
"This is an excellent guide that aims to assist governments to establish technically and economically sound and sustainable planning and management systems for the development and provision of good quality learning materials. The author identifies the most acute problems in book provision, describes the different publishing processes, and the professional skills required in the publishing industry. Other chapters set out the differences between general publishing and the development, production and distribution of educational materials, and how to deal efficiently with the issues and problems that are raised in this book, together with suggestions for the development of an effective national book policy." (Hans M. Zell, Publishing, Books & Reading in Sub-Saharan Africa, 3d ed. 2008, nr. 217)
