I think there's a slight misunderstanding here. He's not publishing
exclusively on the Kindle. The e-books will be available exclusively on the
Kindle, yes, but the print rights remain with Simon & Schuster. All that's
changed is that you can now buy Stephen Covey's "7 Habits" and
"Principle-Centred Leadership" for your Kindle, whereas previously you couldn't buy an electronic version in any format. I did this myself not so many months ago for those of my books where the e-rights were available and not being exploited.

Well, Covey will get all the money his books generate in this scenario. He
doesn't take royalties as he would with a conventional publisher. The
question is, do all Covey's readers have an e-reader, or will they go out
and get one now that Covey is exclusively publishing in this format?
I wanted to listen to Bob Dylan's XM radio program, but not enough to buy an
XM radio. I'll wait until the programs are released on CD. A few have been.
