A MIND APART Journeys in a Neurodiverse World, Uncorrected Proof, Antonetta, Susanne
1 Antonetta, Susanne A MIND APART Journeys in a Neurodiverse World, Uncorrected Proof
Penguin/Jeremy Tarcher 2005 1585423823. / 9781585423828 First Edition Softcover Near Fine 
243 pages. Feels tight and unread, light wear to corners, couple light cover creases, slight soiling to back cover and last page. Book Description: In A Mind Apart, Susanne Antonetta draws on her personal experience with manic depression, as well as interviews with people with multiple personality disorder, autism, schizophrenia, and other "neuroatypical" conditions, to construct a fascinating portrait of how the world shapes itself in minds that are profoundly different from the norm. As with her previous book, which Michael Pollan praised in the New York Times Book Review as "a challenge to our prevailing notions of science and journalism and even literary narrative, " A Mind Apart employs a unique fusion of literary genres to draw readers into the experience of people with neurological conditions and to consider what their alternate ways of perceiving may, in fact, have to teach us.

Publishing Confidential,   The Insider's Guide to What It Really Takes to Land a Nonfiction Book Deal, Brown, Paul B. & Britton Payne & John A. Byrne
5 Brown, Paul B. & Britton Payne & John A. Byrne Publishing Confidential, The Insider's Guide to What It Really Takes to Land a Nonfiction Book Deal
AMACOM 2004 0814472265 / 9780814472262 First Edition Softcover Very Good 
Ex-library book, but still in very good condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type of markings. Pages are clean and intact, light scuffing to covers. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 192 pages; Who among us hasn't harbored a hidden--and, perhaps, not-so-secret--dream of publishing a book? Expanding a 20-page memo originally published in Inc. Magazine, Brown, with major credentials as a magazine editor (including Forbes and Inc. ) and an author (among his book titles is Customers for Life, 1990) , sets out to help us realize that desire. What he imparts is common sense. His three-step process to finding an agent starts with identifying the books with concepts close to yours, reading the acknowledgments, then contacting that agent. The list of questions to ask your editor begins with a query about the intended marketing plans. How he writes is pure entertainment, complete with editorial sidebars (courtesy of Ellen Kadin, acquisitions editor at AMACOM) , footnotes packed with laugh-out-loud information, and occasional illustrations that perk up the well-written text. Barbara Jacobs. (350osl, 0811)
