How Not To Be Wrong update

Big month for How Not To Be Wrong, by the way!  Bill Gates picked the book as one of his five summer reads, and wrote a really nice review on his blog.  It turns out Bill Gates is basically the nerdy Oprah!  Sales spiked at his signal.  (Interesting fact:  the week after his post was the first week ever that we sold more e-books than physical ones.)  Penguin printed a bunch more copies and since then the book has been selling at a level it hasn’t hit since it first came out.  This week, more than a year after publication, the paperback enters the New York Times best seller list at #8.  That’s crazy!

In other news:  the book has now been published in Brazil, Italy, Japan, China, Taiwan, and Korea.  Editions planned for France, Spain, Hungary, Finland, Russia, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Portugal, and Turkey.

    Yes, Congrats! …even though it pains me to think Bill Gates carries that much influence :-(

    I just started chapter six and I am reminded that, as a young boy, I was taught by my father: “Astronomy has astrology, Chemistry gas Alchemy, Maths has Gematria”.

  5. My lengthy (and hopefully constructive) comment is too long to fit inside the margins of the box:
