Rating: ******* (Good)

A really good book on how to get something published (it is assumed that you know the subject).

KM is grafted on, as the reasoning goes that everything that is published is based on knowledge.

This has a very weak link to KM, but if you disregard that and buy it for the publishing tips, it is a good buy.
