The Magazine from Cover to Cover is the #1 book in the Magazine Publishing/Industry course. With solid, up-to-date research, the book offers the most authoritative overview available of the history and publication practices of the magazine industry, including thorough discussions of editorialcontent, advertising, business/publishing models, production, design, and law/ethics. It stands nearly in a class by itself with no other book even coming close to its coverage or comprehensiveness.Reviewers were extremely positive about the book (5 out of 6 rated it a 10 for likelihood of adoption). They were also unanimous in their suggestions for the new edition - most importantly, to add material covering the abundance of technological advances that have occurred since the second editionpublished 4 years ago. This includes not only information on new online/digital/multimedia magazines, websites, and blogs, but also new delivery methods such as phone apps, e-readers, and tablets, as well as digital business models (both ad- and subscription-based) and the rise of social media. Theauthors have responded by adding a new Chapter 2 entitled "The Magazine as a Digital Universe: From Apps to Social Media." In addition, they will add new digital media discussions and examples throughout existing chapters, which will also be thoroughly updated in terms of research, sidebars, andvisuals.
