Where Gomez triumphs is in developing a persuasive picture of the social, cultural and environmental momentum that calls for trade publishers not merely to replicate their book offering online but to rethink how to package and encourage readers to interact with their content in an era of scarce attention, always-on Internet, media multi-tasking and expectations of choice in a developed world where everything is available on-demand.
