The Supremacy of the Book

Suzanne deLong.

Some claim the "book is dead". Information resources in electronic form are very useful in certain circumstances. However, when it comes to synthesis of thought, that activity of humankind where information is sorted, sifted, reworked, and refined to produce coherent argument or discussion, the book is supreme.
