Even though this book was printed in 2009 and therefore very old this book is very well written and is worth a read. The author's dissertation goes over the history of publishing the pros and cons of both traditional publishing and E publishing and goes over the future of both formats. Personally I would recommend this book to anybody interested in the subjects of history or publishing or both. The one downside of this book is that due to copyright issues the author had to remove the images of some of the graphs and charts mentioned.
