A prescription for self-published textbooks: An interview with Bob Hoyt

The Copyright Clearance Center's Director of Business Development, Christopher Kenneally, interviewed self-published author Dr. Robert Hoyt, M.D., on CCC's Beyond the Book program about his textbook, Health Informatics: A Practical Guide for Healthcare and Information Technology Professionals, now in its sixth edition. During the interview, Hoyt told Kenneally that self-publishing gave he and his coauthor a lot more flexibility, the biggest one being turnaround time. Standard book publishing takes 2-3 years, he said, and their topic mandated a faster turnaround: "Self-publishing was the only way to do that." Listen to the full interview on CCC's Beyond the Book site.
