|We started publishing
Stikky books in 2003 after a web-based trial generated far more interest
than we expected
Our first book, Stikky Night Skies, took a year to create.
The series covers topics we believe will be of value and interest to anyone. We created it because we couldn't find a 'how to' book that takes into account recent findings about how people learn. Instead, they often provide too much information and structure it in a way that makes sense to experts but not to beginners. According to our research, most people read less than half of 'how to' books they buy.The Stikky approach
How we create a Stikky book
We record every time they get stuck, together with hundreds of other suggestions, and make careful changes. Then we go through the whole process again.
Everything about our products is informed by this research: the format, the binding, even the name. And we only publish a book when we know it works.
