The book will be submitted for publication to major publishing houses including Penguin/Random House, Harper Collins, Simon and Schuster, and Harvard Business Publishing. Two of the groups mentioned above have already shown an interest; however, if not selected, Ivy Publishing will pay for publication and promote your work.
