Ken Reek will talk about his experiences in writing the book Pointers on C, just published by Addison Wesley. He will describe the process from start to finish, including: selling the project to a publisher; reviewers and pedagogy wars; dealing with editors, artists, marketing and other publishing folks; producing an index; composition and the production of camera ready output; and the money aspect.
