    Fascinating and Insightful

    Even though this interview is available for free on Joe Konrath's blog, it's certainly worth the 99 cents to have a copy on your Nook. The interview if informative and funny, with each author dinging the other every few paragraphs. This eBook has some interactive features, such as links to external sites (and I recommend you do not click on the Monkey and the Frog link). I know Joe and Barry have another (smaller) round of conversations on Joe's blog, and I am interested in seeing if it gets included in an update to this eBook. Ninty-nine cents is a small tithe to pay for a ringside seat to this interview, which will explain why two successful traditional authors decided to take the self-published path. I've actually read this interview twice since downloading it.

    Invaluable

    For anyone who needs/wants to be schooled in the advantages, conundrums, success stories, and future prospects of ebooks and self-publishing, I highly recommend this dialog between two obvious cognoscentes of the art of writing and the business of publishing. A really informative and fun read.

    Excellent review of the revolution occurring in the digital publishing world

    This purposefully, I suspect, underpriced conversation/interview among three very knowledgeable, witty and savvy writer-publishers is worth five times its price. For student of Deming, Peter Senge and others in the business who fashioned and pioneered the revolutionary changes in the business and manufacturing worlds overseas (largely ignored by the behemoths of American Industry) will be fascinated by the observations of these authors whose single handed pioneering successes illustrate the similar revolution going on in the worlds of writing and publishing. Showing what the demise of Borders and other publishing paper based distribution systems of 'books' means currently makes for almost ringside seat excitement. From the budding writer wondering where and how to publish, to the media policy wonk, this little volume is worth many times its price for its incisive insights.
