RMB's Fall 2012 selection of books shows that this once strictly regional publisher is continuing to branch out and push itself in terms of what it publishes. RMB is showing Canadians that this publishing company has something to say and they are saying it in the books that they produce, the authors they chose to support and the subjects they tackle. These are titles for lovers of books and for those who "Think Outside".
