We all have held them and read them, yet so few of us have written them or even know about the process behind them. We are talking books. Though journal articles are the primary methods of sharing research, books play a crucial role in our society and in the ways in which knowledge is spread, especially to the general population.

View guest speakers Drs. Ina Vandebroek and Rick Stepp as they demystify this medium and the ways in which you can use it. The speakers focused on the specifics of writing for this medium, as well as the elements of editing and publication as they pertain to it.
