McMillan - Warner Publishing today announced a major milestone achieved by its bestselling author, Dr. Colin Simpson. With the successful release of his sixth book, Simpson has now reached 500,000 in global textbook sales. “This is an extraordinary accomplishment and the first time a Canadian author has reached half a million sales of non-fiction, educational textbooks,” said William Gladstone, President and Publisher of McMillan - Warner.
Simpson is a former professor of Electronics Engineering Technology at George Brown College in Toronto, Canada. He holds several patents in simulation technology and has developed world-renowned simulation products including CircuitLogix, RoboLogix, PLCLogix, and LogixSim. According to Gladstone, Simpson’s success has been based on his ability to integrate theoretical course material with interactive lab simulation. “In terms of pedagogy, what Dr. Simpson has done in the fields of electronics and robotics education is unlike anything ever achieved by an author, and this is reflected in the outstanding sales of his books and software.”
Simpson’s first book, published in 1992, became a bestseller and won a Publisher’s Guild award. Over the past 20 years, he has published six textbooks which have been translated into more than 15 languages. He has won numerous national and international awards and is recognized as an expert in the field of simulation technology. His award-winning electronics simulation software, CircuitLogix, is used by more than 200,000 students in over 1,500 schools worldwide.
