The World's 56 Largest Book Publishers, 2014

Posted at 5:14PM Saturday 28 Jun 2014

Pearson came in first, with $9.33 billion in revenue, followed by Reed Elsevier, Thomson/Reuters, and Wolters Kluwer. All four educational and professional publishers held the same respective positions on the list in 2012.
