The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 12/28/18

  |   Reading Lists Print Friendly and PDF

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Even though writing and storytelling and blogging and SEO aren’t your day job, you want to do them better.

You need to get the most value you can from your reading time. That’s why every week I pick the one post from the web’s multitudes that will help you get better. This week I’m pointing you to a post on the future of books. It’s a longer read than usual, but I thought it was perfect for a long New Year weekend.

From Wharton: Why Books Matter for the Long Run

“Book publishing is a business and increasingly a technical one, but at its heart it is an art, writes Peter J. Dougherty in this opinion piece. He is the editor-at-large at Princeton University Press, for which he was the director from 2005 until his retirement in 2017, and currently sits as the Fox Family Pavilion Scholar and distinguished senior fellow at the University of Pennsylvania.”
