Al Ries on Double Branding
A Fun Day for New Books

Our 10th Bestseller of 2007!


The hits just keep on coming.  It's my pleasure to report that our editorial group at Wiley has now had its 10th different new publication appear on Amazon's Top 25 Computers & Internet list.  The latest hit is Tim Grey's Photoshop CS3 Workflow, a title we just published earlier in the week and Tim's second new best seller this year (Lightroom Workflow is the other).  The CS3 books is currently #11 on the list and was as high as #8 yesterday.

So in less than 5 full months of 2007, we've now had the following list of titles hit Amazon's Top 25 (in no particular order):

Second Life: The Official Guide

Skin: The Complete Guide to Digitally Lighting, Photographing & Retouching Faces & Bodies

Windows Vista Secrets

Professional XNA Game Programming

Search Engine Optimization: An Hour a Day

Lifehacker: 88 Tech Tricks to Turbocharge Your Day

Introducing Character Animation with Blender

About Face 3: The Essentials of Interaction Design

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Workflow

Photoshop CS3 Workflow

Without trying to pick a fight;-), I challenge any other computer book publisher out there to add a comment to this post with all their recent publications that have cracked Amazon's Top 25 list.  Has anyone else had 10 (or more!) new titles achieve this status in the first 5 months of 2007?

As I've said before, I'm very blessed to be part of an outstanding team full of amazing publishing professionals.  The results we continue to enjoy only help to underscore that important point -- great job, team!



Congrats... I know I've reviewed a few of those titles, and they've been great.

Congrats to you and the whole crew! What I like most about this list is the variety of topics covered and audiences reached. And how cool, as a former Sybexer, to see so many Sybex titles in the mix. Great to see the line thriving.

Yes, Sybex is indeed an important part of this team! Folks should also know that you played a role in many of those Sybex books in the list -- thanks for all your hard work as well!
