Yesterday, during Upinder Singh’s speech, she mentioned how she was scared to deal with Pearson, because she didn’t want to write a book which would say LOW PRICE EDITION on it. I could see from the audience reaction that this rang true with them. I am so glad that we are getting rid of those words from our covers, they have long outlived their usefulness.
We have a responsibility to provide books that are appropriately priced to the market, but we need to stand for quality, not for low price.
Its all of you are leading the change at Pearson, and the sooner we are respected for the quality of our content and our presentation, rather than our price, the better we will all be.
