“MBS has done an excellent job of selling our academic titles to the schools and students they have served over the past several years. It is with great anticipation that we are working with MBS in 2013 to convert several of our titles to digital books that will work on their system. They have an excellent reputation of meeting the needs of schools and students with quality service. We hope that making several of our better-selling texts available as digital books through MBS will help them to continue to meet the demands of this market.” – David Lewis, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Baker Publishing Group
