Death of the Book—and Other Good News, with Daniel Okrent

According to Dan Okrent, "The digital revolution has upended the roles of bookstores, libraries, publishers and, of course, readers. It's the biggest change in the world of words since Gutenberg, and may turn out to be just as beneficial -- or even more so." Daniel Okrent is an author and editor who is best known as the first public editor of The New York Times. He attended the University of Michigan, where he worked at the Michigan Daily.
