Pub Speak is the perfect handbook for those who need to navigate the publishing business.  Whether you are a new author or just someone who wants to understand publishing, this dictionary is a great source for terms used in the industry.  A-Z - So much is covered that it is difficult to describe. There are agency terms, contract and royalty terms, e-book information, book publishers and sellers, publishing terms, websites and social networking, abbreviations, and character terms.

Although I would highly recommend Pub Speak for authors, I also think this book is of interest for book reviewers, bloggers, and readers.  There is information on voice, characters and fiction terms that will help reviewers.  Many authors now are self-publishing and Pub Speaks is a great resource for learning the essentials.
