For many years Microsoft Press books have included a survey page at the back via which we ask for your feedback about the book you purchased, borrowed, checked out of the library, stumbled upon, whatever, and then—thank you!—used. That page promised a “brief online survey.” Well, that survey was pretty brief, and Microsoft Press editors would yearly go over all of your feedback to look for ways to make our books better. But that was then…
We’ve just revised the survey to make it even briefer and to focus it more on your needs (rather than on market-related info as well). And we’ve started a review program in which we look at your feedback by book, by series, by author, by audience as a team every quarter. This is all good, but it’s meaningless without your input.
Please give us feedback about the Microsoft Press books you use via the new survey:
Your participation will help Microsoft Press create books that better meet your needs and your standards. Thanks in advance for helping us do that!
P.S. On the back of each of our books, you’ll find an ISBN. The survey begins by asking you for that number. The ISBN ensures that your feedback is correctly linked to the book you’re commenting on. If you don’t have the book on hand, you can find the book’s ISBN by searching for the book in Microsoft Learning’s Learning Catalog or at the sites of online retailers such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
EXAMPLE ONLY. Each book has a unique ISBN.
P.P.S. We’ve spent no effort on the aesthetics of the survey, and it shows. 🙂
