"Information Wants to Be Shared" is an insightful exploration of modern media economics filled with interesting questions and scenarios about how information markets will evolve in the future. What will sustain movies, music, book, local reporting, and so on in the future? Gans does a terrific job making these issues easy to understand and doesn't try to evangelize as much as the many others who have written on these issues. If you've read and enjoyed Carl Shapiro and Hal Varian's classic text, Information Rules, then you will find Gans' book to be the perfect compliment.

Gans doesn't have a lot to say about public policy, however. This is really more of a business book suited for industry analysts and business school students. Nonetheless, some of its implications for policy are clear since many of these business model debates boil over into the policy arena.

This is a great book to read if you're interested in thinking about how information moves in society and how the people who produce it can make a living, and really, all of us should be concerned with that. If we don't think about these issues, we could end up in a world in which the only people who produce the information sources we consume are those who can afford to do so without being paid- and that will change the information we see. The book is well-written and easy to follow, and raised ideas and issues I had not thought about before reading it.

Mostly a restatement of "longtail" theory of content distribution, but the restatement and padding gets repetitive quickly. Might be good as a free white paper or extended blog post.

Enlightening, clearly explained and interestingly written, with the odd personal touch. You won't read this stuff in any textbook. Few economists have thought about this topic as much as Gans has.
