It is not suprising that you are unsatisfied with Macmillan's promotion. They don't know a good book from bad. I don't consider books published under the Ziff-Davis, Waite, and other Macmillan brands because they are almost universally "by idiots for idiots." On the other hand, I at least browse most Adison-Wesley and ORA books on subjects that interest me.
