Benefits of the Short Format

The Next Web has an article about an economist named Tyler Cowen who chose to release a 15,000 word doc as an ebook only publication. From the article:

” But with the short length came several considerations: printing costs, distribution, whether book stores would stock it. It didn’t take long for Cowen to decide that an ebook edition would be appropriate. Dutton, the publisher that had published his previous books, was open to the idea.”
