"Publishing is a business, a sport, and an art."
The head of Random House is stepping down, and this is a really interesting (though old) article on him, and on publishing in general. It does a great job of profiling the pathology of publishing - commerce vs art: a fight to the death. It gets weird toward the end, but if you have any interest in a powerful man's stuffed animal collection, it's worth a read.
