So even though you've been working your tail off and haven't done anything unprofessional, you're fired, because just maybe your industry is different from related industies? Would you want to work for that kind of organization? Maybe you would. Maybe you already do. If so, you have my condolences.

Also, who said anything about replacing B&N executives with "newbies?" To the contrary, I would replace them with only experienced people.
Why would any first-rate experienced person want to work in a declining industry under those conditions?

The eBook revolution is putting people out of work. In broad outline, it is the creative destruction of capitalism and can't be helped. But for an old-line company to have even a chance of being the exception, it will need risk-taking managers. And if firing is uppermost in their mind, they'll play it the company way. Yea, they'll stick lose their job when the firm goes bankrupt, but not as quickly.
