Highest Rated Publishers

Some publishers are very selective with the books they choose to publish. Those publishers only release books that they have carefully vetted. They make sure the books that they publish get top-notch editing and are free of formatting errors or other problems that could affect readability.

Some other publishers are not as reliable. They may be "publish anything" type of publishers. These publishers may not put much investment or effort in the books they publish. The books they publish may be poorly edited or not well vetted. Readers might be wise to avoid reading books by such publishers.

Some say you can't judge a book by its cover, and that's true; but you can judge a book in part by which company publishes it. The publisher of a book is kind of the like the brand name of a piece of clothing or the make of a car. There are millions of books out there to read, so the reputation of the publisher is definitely something to consider when choosing whether or not to invest your valuable time in reading a book.
