About Agile Publishing

Our loyal fans around the world who know they can count on us to deliver the goods: books that cut through the “party line” and deliver real value. We’re not beholden to a large conglomerate or staid publishing industry practices. We publish books on topics that we would want to read.

Folks have called what we’re doing “Agile Publishing,” and that’s part of our motivation. We can respond to our readers faster and with better quality than we could under more traditional arrangements.
