This news got me thinking I’ve contributed to the book authoring process for 5 books now – which means I’ve contributed to 0.25% of the Packt books. Reviewing a book takes on average 4 hours per chapter and most Packt books comes with 10-12 chapters. If it takes 4 times longer to write a chapter (16 hours) that’s 160 hours per book and 32,000 hours of authoring effort in the Packt library, which equates to over 3 1/2 years of non stop writing.
