Jeff Jarvis Stars in New Video Book

HarperCollins has released their first video book, a filmed overview of Jeff Jarvis‘ new book, What Would Google Do? It’s one of six projected titles that allow readers to watch their favorite writer on portable media devices.

Selling for $9.99, the book can be downloaded to both the iPod and iPhone. According to the Washington Post, the company will share 25 percent of the sales with the writer–resembling HarperCollins policy for e-book sales.

Here’s a description of the first v-book: “The 23-minute video has Jarvis speaking into a single camera with a white background. Instead of reading directly from the book, which was published last month by the company’s Collins Business imprint, Jarvis runs through the basic concepts in the book, such as how Google has been able to compete so successfully on the web and what can be learned from its practices.” (Via.)
