Recently Barry Ritholtz posted about Michael Lewis’ new book. He was making a point about a dealing with publishers and Amazon. So true! Writing a book and navigating these waters is often a not fun experience. Just today I received a deal note that one of the foreign publishers for my book “Trend Following” was now set to release it in electronic format in Russian. Good news? Sure, but wow what a slow and inefficient process. You would think this could all happen in a concerted, organized fashion. It doesn’t. Bottom line, authors control very little except the content of the book!
