This week on the podcast, Mark Metcalf meets Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten, CEO and President, respectively, of 800-CEO-READ, a local company that sells business books and promotes great ideas. (We think THEY’RE a great idea!)

Jack and Todd are also co-authors of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time: What They Say, Why They Matter and How They Can Help You. Mark, Jack and Todd discuss the process of writing and publishing a book, from the seed of an idea to making a pitch to submitting P&L statements to your publisher and considering design.

Jack and Todd also talk about the future of books as we know them: how Amazon’s Kindle will change the game, whether or not anyone will be able to compete with the Kindle and what will happen to books on paper.

It’s a very special edition of Backstage with Mark Metcalf and the second in our two-part series on local booksellers. Hear Mark’s interview with Carol Grossmeyer, owner of Schwartz Books and 800-CEO-READ, here.
