Presented by industry expert Philip Jones, editor of The Bookseller, The Naked Book is a fortnightly radio show dedicated to ripping the covers off print books and finding out what lies beneath.

In the next six years books will transform more than they have in the six hundred years since Guttenberg.

We’ll be speaking to people from across the publishing firmament as we track these fundamental changes that are wrenching the heart out of the traditional book trade model.

From DRM to Pottermore: we’ll be setting the agenda for the new age.
