The print-on-paper book industry under threat as never before. This threat was exposed in a study by Barclay's Capital which suggested that a quarter of all worldwide book sales in 2015 will be made up of eBooks.

The explosive growth of eBook publishing has serious ramifications for all bricks-and-mortar libraries, bookstores and the entire supply chain which supports them. Indeed the rationale for their very existence is under threat.

This book will help publishers and authors understand the paradigm shift that is taking place.

Unfortunately, the nascent eBook industry operates in a Tower of Babel with different eBook reading languages on competing devices offered by ruthless dog-eat-dog competitors; each of which is fighting for market share.

It is no wonder that many publishers, self-publishers and authors are confused. That's where this book can help them. It reviews the myriad of different devices on which eBooks can be read and then it covers the different computer languages used to deliver them. Readers will find out what's involved in preparing their material so that it can be read in eBook format.
