About this book

There is a crisis in publishing, reading and education regarding all aspects of the book. Who is reading? What are they reading? How are they reading? When are they reading? Why are they reading? The only real consensus is that reading is sacred - but how will it evolve in the new information sea?

This book directly addresses all of these considerations and offers insight in to the new publishing models of the future.
