comment How difficult is it to get published? - The Objective Version
Ok, let me be a little bit more precise about what I'm asking. I'm not asking for myself to tryto figure out the chances of publishing my book. I'm trying to understand the large numbers to try to get a feel for how "publishing" works in general. The effect of throwing a thousand balls in the air is a good analogy. I'd like to know how many are expected to fall within a certain area. I don't care which ones they are. Another way to look at it is I care about the MACRO effects of publishing. I'm less intersted in the MICRO isues (e.g. will this book be published?).
