    What this book is NOT: 1) How to set up a recording room to tape interviews, make your own audiobook, or other voice acting 2) How-to Do-It-Yourself self-publish your own audiobook. What this book is: 1) How to establish your own audiobook company 2) How to read and review contracts in the audiobook industry. 3) How to understand what is happening if someone asks for the audiobook rights to your book and the process they will be going through. 4) How to fit into the audiobook industry in any of the job What this book is NOT: 1) How to set up a recording room to tape interviews, make your own audiobook, or other voice acting 2) How-to Do-It-Yourself self-publish your own audiobook. What this book is: 1) How to establish your own audiobook company 2) How to read and review contracts in the audiobook industry. 3) How to understand what is happening if someone asks for the audiobook rights to your book and the process they will be going through. 4) How to fit into the audiobook industry in any of the jobs needed, from director to voice talent. While the title seems to indicate the book will describe how to create a singleton audiobook, it is much more focused on creating a process for ongoing audiobook production. The author is a lawyer and goes deep into the contracts and legal aspects missing in most "how-to" and "guide" books. In addition the first chapter is about making sure that creating an audiobook is COST-EFFECTIVE. So many times people want to jump into a new experience without looking at the numbers first. After reading this book you will understand contracts and copyrights better and how both the publishing and the audiobook industry works. You will understand the steps of creating a big-budget audiobook and all the people involved - from producer (which this book is focused on) to Quality Control reading, as well as the normal voice-talent and distribution most books of this type focus on. Pulling the curtain back further than you see from most audiobook guides, this guide provides a perspective not usually seen. If you are thinking of publishing other people's audiobooks (for example, as a small-press) or getting your self-published book picked up by an audiobook publisher, this manuscript will be useful. If you are thinking about setting up your own in-house recording studio - pick up a different book - AND this book, because this book will tell you who your market is and where you fit in the production process. Full disclosure: Received for honest review.

But more than that I think the person that will benefit the most with this book is someone that is looking into becoming an audiobook publisher and would like to acquire rights to publish audiobooks from regular written books. Either way, if you're an indie author, or an indie publisher looking to expand your reach thru audiobooks, this book is a great start.
