For more than 20 years, TAA has supported textbook and academic authors through these highly-recognized awards, given annually to emerging and veteran published authors in eight subject categories.
Here's what some of the 2017 Textbook Award winners had to say:
"After 24 years of textbook writing, it is deeply gratifying to receive this affirmation of the value of my work. I am very grateful to my team at McGraw-Hill Education, from editorial and design through marketing, whose commitment to quality has been vital to the success of my books." -- Kenneth Saladin, author of Anatomy & Physiology: The Unity of Form and Function, 2017 McGuffey Longevity Award Winner
"I'm thrilled to receive this honor along with my co-author Tracy Tuten and our publisher SAGE. While we constantly focus on creating a valuable resource for our faculty adopters and student readers, validation by our peers is a rare opportunity and very gratifying." -- Michael Solomon, co-author of Social Media Marketing, 2017 Textbook Excellence Award Winner
