A very good tabular presentation of the options for authors from being traditionally published through to self-publishing it yourself. As Jane shows with the "Special + Hard-to-classify Cases" not every option can be easily compartmentalised.

 

One niggle I had was that traditional publishing equated to LOWER author royalty / revenue whereas d-i-y self-publishing equated to HIGHER. This is possibly true if you are considering it on a royalty / revenue per copy basis but may not be true where a traditional publisher can sell so many more copies.

 

Despite that, I think this a valuable resource for budding authors.
