Deadlines and Disruption is a book about journalism at a time of radical disruption, written as a memoir by someone who lived through it. It is fundamentally a tale of transition — actually many transitions. It is the passage of a working-class Jewish kid from the Bronx who rises to the top of the magazine world. It is the story of how he built Business Week into one of the world’s best and most lucrative magazines, only to see it later succumb to mismanagement and the imperatives of the Internet age. It is the saga of how, at age 65, he launched a new graduate school of journalism for a new era, struggling himself to understand the topsy-turvy forces at work — and to accept them. And, ultimately, it is the transformation of journalism itself as it tries to find new business models for the digital age.
