"Publishers seem resistant to the facts of today’s economy. Consumers are in control: They decide what works and what doesn’t; they’re the harbingers of cool. They are the ultimate distribution channel.
But it’s not too late for the book publishers. If they choose to be carried by the wave of consumer opinion – instead of swimming against it – they can reinvent themselves."
