MEDIA CONNECT: Do you prefer being pitched by email or are you open to phone calls?
Jim Pawlak: Email.
MC: What business topics currently interest you the most?
JP: Anything of broad appeal to readers; that said, I don’t review books on ethics/governance/Boards and personal finance/investments.
MC: Do you like receiving galleys?
MC: Do you prefer physical or e-versions of a book?
JP: Physical only.
MC: Do you ever feature self-published authors?
JP: Seldom; many who self-publish really aren’t good writers.
MC: What topic or trend have you seen enough of in business books?
JP: Books on C-level leadership (I receive about four each month); I doubt the executives have much time to read them.
