Editorial Reviews


“André Schiffrin, a distinguished former New York publisher, has been throughout this decade an indispensable, if rather pessimistic, guide to life after a cultural apocalypse, first in the much-admired The Business of Booksand now in Words and Money. There’s a lot that’s passionate and useful in Schiffrin’s anguished analysis.”—Robert McCrum, Observer

“A masterful assessment of the media crisis of our times and a roadmap to workable and effective solutions. This elegant essay is intelligent, informed, reasoned, and humane—exactly the book the world needs at this time.”—Robert W. McChesney

“A utopian vision, to be sure, but a refreshing one.”—Le Monde

“This book reads like a novel. Schiffrin continues to sow ideas for saving the independence of the press, the cinema, and bookstores. Visionary as always.”—Le Magazine des Livres

“A lifelong promoter of independent media, André Schiffrin again leads the charge in Words and Money, offering a host of original and valuable ideas about one of the critical challenges of our day—saving books, movies, and news in an era of chains, blockbusters, and the internet.”—Michael Massing

“Schiffrin shows how media consolidation is pulling the teeth of serious journalism, and how it can get its bite back.”—Vanity Fair

“Masterfully written and extremely thought-provoking, this work should stimulate a much-needed dialog among those interested in the communications and publishing field.”—Library Journal

“A sophisticated voice of reason.”—Los Angeles Times
