Why Book Publishing Must Die

Here is an opinion piece by Richard Nash, former publisher at Soft Skull Press, why traditional book publishing will and should die.

"The book business is a tiny industry perched atop a massive hobby. But rather than celebrate and serve the hobbyists, we expect them to shell out ever more money for the books we keep throwing at them...."

Mr. Nash does not offer new, concrete ideas for a new business model for book publishing to connect readers to writers, but gives a concise description of the angst of the industry.
