Luddite versus Levett

There was an interesting article about the rise of e-books in Publishers Weekly last week;  interesting partly for it’s abject feeble-mindedness (yes, there are people in the publishing industry who are still wandering around whimpering, “I don’t like these new-fangled e-reader thingies; they’ll never catch on,”) but mainly for the ease and elegance with which friend-of- the-WoME Jeremy Levett obliterates it in the ‘comments’ section.  Actually, Jeremy’s tightly-argued demolition job made me feel quite sorry for the hapless PW hack – it’s like watching an angry caveman taken out by laser-guided missiles.  You can read the whole thing here.
