We're a Midwest-based publisher that has been publishing affordable textbooks for select courses since 2004. We specialize in acquiring the rights to under-served textbooks from the big publishers and revising them for our textbook media model. That means a quality textbook from proven authors - a textbook that was developed by the big publishers via peer reviews, and includes ancillaries, but is offered to the market at a fraction of the price.
Textbook Media Press was founded by a group of former publishing executives and well-known academics looking to deliver a disruptive textbook publishing model. Launched originally as Freeload Press, a “freemium” publisher (a front-runner to Flat World Knowledge) and re-branded as Textbook Media in 2009.
The Textbook Media publishing model has been honed over ten years in the market, servicing hundreds of instructor users and delivering affordable textbooks to over a million college students. We provide the course instructor with a reliable teaching tool, while at the same time offering students a textbook with media options at uniquely affordable prices.
