The Book Is Dead; Long Live the Book

Phil and Stephen take a close look at the reading revolution that is currently taking place. Books are being replaced by electronic devices at a rapid clip. Is this good news or bad news?

Some research shows that the electronic approach helps new readers to get more deep into the material.

On the other hand, some research shows that e-readers are bad for long-term reading comprehension.

So which view is right? And which model is likely to win out?

Tune in and explore.
