Publisher Information

Advanced Publishing

Founder and President Carl Sommer left industry at the age of 40 to become a New York City high school teacher. Seeing the nation-wide educational problems he wrote his first book, Schools in Crisis: Training for Success or Failure? Even though Sommer had 181 college credits, when he moved to Texas with his family of five children he couldn't afford to teach. He went back to industry, and became operations manager of a large tool and die and stamping company. With his two sons, he started a precision machining company which became the largest of its kind west of the Mississippi River. Today two of his sons run Reliable EDM, and another son manages Advance Publishing and Digital Cornerstone, a recording and video studio. This enables Sommer to devote his time in developing educational materials. (Learn more about Carl Sommer.)
