Meet the Adviser: Questions and Answers with Matty Goldberg of Perseus Books Group
What big issues do you see publishers thinking and talking about these days?
Big issues? Where to begin? I think every publisher, no matter what their size, is wrestling with a rapidly evolving marketplace, with discoverability for their titles, with the digital transformation of the industry and a host of other issues. They're thinking about these big issues while keeping the boat afloat — working as hard as ever on the book they're publishing here and now. It often feels like everyone in the industry is now doing two jobs — their old job and their still-forming new job.
