The Editor's Cut produces short, focused electronic books.

Every one of our books takes you on an adventure where you face new villains and (spoiler alert) emerge victorious.

Each title is designed to quickly teach you the basics of a single topic. We've honed the stories to remove the side trips and the corner cases. You'll concentrate on the core fundamentals as you master new tools and techniques.

With every book we produce, we learn more about this new medium. We try to select the right words, metaphors, images, videos, and widgets to explain each concept.

Do you have comments about an existing book, ideas for a new book, or just want to tell us something?

You can read our blog or follow us @editorscut on Twitter, to keep up with what we're doing and thinking about.

You can, of course, subscribe to the blog or to the Editor's Cut newsletter


Some stories lend themselves to books and some are better told in person.

Join us at conferences and other public events for short presentations. The Speaking page contains a list of upcoming appearances as well as links to past talks that were captured on video.

We've also created one to four day classes for many of our best-selling books. You'll find a complete description of these offerings on the Training page.

Individuals and small groups may want to attend one of our upcoming public classes. Dates and locations are available on the Training page as well.

If you are interested in private training for your group or company, contact us at
