The Future of Publishing #4 by Nick Morgan
Nick Morgan wrote an excellent piece titled “What is the Future of Publishing?” in Forbes. In it Morgan talks about where he thinks the future looms for publishing. It is a great and kind of obvious take on things, put into perspective by a master communicator.
We especially liked #4, but by all means check out the article:
