IMAGINE THIS!

Long-Time Publisher Launches New Venture
And
Teams with Legendary Singer/Songwriter Peter Yarrow

Charles Nurnberg, former CEO of Sterling Publishing Co. Inc., has founded Imagine Publishing, Inc. to bring his publishing philosophy of books that inspire, educate and “edutain” to the book-buying public. The titles will cross over a multitude of subjects including science and nature, music and art, sports and reference, and the magic of knowledge.

************************************

Has it been a slow slide, or is language at the top of the hill and screaming its way to the bottom? When a publisher can utilize a "word" such as edutain in a press release concerning books, the cliches about 'the floodgates are open' and 'the inmates control the asylum' spill from the key board.

"Pah!" say I.

Hah!

But when we dismiss those new words like Edutain with words equally scarce in dictionaries like "Pah!" what then?

 I hear you though...when did it become necessary to invent a new buzzword to catch people's attention with a book?
