The book's journey into the future of television begins with "You Are Here," delving into "The Great Convergence" of television and Internet and the vortex of change we all inhabit now. Then, glancing back, we explore "The Old World" of broadcast television to understand how we got to this moment of transition. Next, traveling "Between Worlds," we visit cable television and see how the boundaries between network, cable, and Internet are mutating.
