About the book:

Nineteen original essays make up this indispensable guide for anyone who is interested in the past and future of books and the publishing industry. This book is intended as both a celebration of the value and importance of reading and a spirited defense against the many gloomy voices in our so-called electronic age that say the book will soon be obsolete. The essays explore how books shape and nourish our lives; why readers turn to books in the era of cyberspace; whether the book has a future; and the many issues that concern academic publishers who are trying to preserve the book.
