    So if you already publish excerpts from a book here, then you should make it consistent and publish the content mentioned in the extract accordingly.

    "Figure h in the appendix shows the derived sales of Amazon® in the years 2007-2010 by product groups."

    What attachment? The picture is missing.

    "So from the table above it can be seen that the non-media area
    Already in the year 2010 a nearly as strong sales column as the
    Media sector itself, and in the meantime it has even become clear
    should surpass. "

    Which table? There is no to see.

    So does the whole after, just copy and paste divided into several parts, without meaning and reason. The series "The 7 pillars of the success factor resilience" is also not much better, because there is not one self-contained article after another, but in principle only a single article, which is also so coherently formulated, piece by piece is extended.

      Hello Benjamin,

      thanks for the hint. Unfortunately, we made a mistake and displayed the wrong table. The first table above was originally at this point, but I have you then wg. of the layout. We correct that. I have asked the author for the correct table. Can take a while, sorry.

      What bothers you because that excerpts from books that you would otherwise have to buy expensive, make available free of charge? If we were to contribute all the parts, no one would read because of the length. And the resilience series is very well received, as the positive feedback proves:

      • Benjamin Wagener

        It does not bother me that extracts from books are published. I would just customize it a little for publishing in the blog in the wording. So it reads for me simply very wry.

        • Simone Janson

          I will pass this on to the authors. Unfortunately this is always a bit difficult with the rights between publisher and author. And also a question of time.

          In addition, books are written quite differently: for example, you are automatically bouncing more, because you have a lot more space, a blog post quickly gets to the point and communicates directly with the reader. Unfortunately, the authors do not always have the time to write a blog post.

          • Benjamin Wagener

            Then I would consider whether it would not be more meaningful then the readability because of the reading sample as a PDF or so in a framework of the literary work and the respective excerpt commenting blog article. But finally, this is your blog, you need to know what you like.

          • Simone Janson

            Hello Benjamin,

            yes, the request for printable texts we had schonmal.

          • Benjamin Wagener

            Well, the texts are also printable. Ne round copy & paste or appropriate supporting browser addons and done.

          • Simone Janson

            I would have thought also, but it gave just the request. Apparently, many readers would like to have an expressive button. And: of course, the texts are not as nicely legibly formatted as in the PDF, but that is just synonymous complex.

    • Simone Janson

      The table is now here ;-)
