BK Rights in July 2016: Our Classic Bestsellers continue to shine brightly!

We are always delighted to note that our classic bestselling titles continue to generate subsidiary rights revenues for our authors, many many years after their original publication. Our strategy of publishing updated editions of those books that are doing well in the marketplace, gives us the opportunity to add more languages to the list over the years. As you can see from the list below, apart from the thre classic titles pictured above, we have also added three languages for the 2nd edition of Theory U by Otto Scharmer (to be published later in August.)
