We’ve all read plenty about the bankruptcy of Borders Books and the closing of its stores and the abrupt unemployment of over 10,000 Borders employees.

No doubt there’ll be a book published eventually about What Actually Happened, but in the meantime here’s the most enlightening – and mostdepressing – tale we’ve read so far about how the management of Borders is largely (totally?) to blame for the company’s collapse – and about how long ago (and why)  that collapse began.
