"Imagine speeding along the freeway while your driver, Ludwig Wittgenstein, dissects and reassembles the bumper-sticker "wisdom" on passing cars. Thats the kind of trip it is to read If You Can Read This."â€”Tom Cathcart and Dan Klein, authors of Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar "In the sense of being pregnant with meaning, this book has a baby on board."â€”Christopher Hitchens, author of God Is Not Great Readers may find themselves involved in fender benders once they realize how much fun it is to think about the messages in bumper stickers and start tailgating in order to read and analyze them. A fantastic contribution to philosophy as it occurs in the real world.â€”John Perry, co-host of the nationally syndicated Philosophy Talk, professor emeritus of philosophy at Stanford University "If you love twitter (and even if you don't), you're going to love Jack Bowen's insightful and hilarious romp through the pre-twitter world of bumper sticker sloganeering. On every page I had two reactions: (1) a vigorous horse laugh, and (2) a curious 'uh, I didn't know that.' Humor and insight: what more can you ask from a book? Sex. Yes, it has that too.

The award-winning illustrator Grady Klein has paired up with the worlds only stand-up economist, Yoram Bauman, PhD, to take the dismal out of the dismal science. From the optimizing individual to game theory to price theory, The Cartoon Introduction to Economics is the most digestible, explicable, and humorous 200-page introduction to microeconomics youll ever read. Bauman has put the comedy into economy at comedy clubs and universities around the country and around the world (his Principles of Economics, Translated is a YouTube cult classic). As an educator at both the university and high school levels, he has learned how to make economics relevant to todays world and todays students. As Googles chief economist, Hal Varian, wrote, You dont need a brand-new economics. You just need to see the really cool stuff, the material they didnt get to when you studied economics. The Cartoon Introduction to Economics is all about integrating the really cool stuff into an overview of the entire discipline of microeconomics, from decision trees to game trees to taxes and thinking at the margin. Rendering the cool stuff fun is the artistry of the illustrator and lauded graphic novelist Klein. Panel by panel, page by page, he puts comics into economics. So if the vertiginous economy or a dour professors 600-page econ textbook has you desperate for a fun, factual guide to economics, reach for The Cartoon Introduction to Economics and let the collaborative genius of the Klein-Bauman team ...
Is the Internet stoking democratic change or is its impact hyped? Are repressive regimes conditioning people not to expect free expression on the Internet? Is online organizing little more than a game of Whac-a-Mole with one form of repression being replaced by another?

Join Google and Freedom House to answer this question and many more.

Jeff Garlin visits Google's San Francisco office to present his book "My Footprint: Carrying the Weight of the World". This event took place on March 22, 2010, as part of the Authors@Google series. Jeff Garlin shares his hysterical and eye-opening journey to reduce his waistline and his carbon footprint during the production of the seventh season of HBOs Curb Your Enthusiasm. Jeff Garlin has dedicated the filming of an entire season of Curb Your Enthusiasm to completely making over his lifestyle in two major ways--by lightening his physical and his ecological footprints. After many false starts, he believes that writing a book about the experiment is the only possible way to help him lose weight and go green. The hardest part of the endeavor is overcoming his food addiction--especially when craft service has a constant buffet of everything delicious you could imagine on set. In addition to cutting calories, Jeff accidentally falls into a love affair with pilates, sweats with Richard Simmons, and twice visits the Pritikin Longevity Center, which he says is "rehab for people who eat too much pizza." Larry Davids rooting for him. Jerry Seinfelds plotting against him. And his wife is just plain annoyed by everything. As far as going green, Jeff has always been a big recycler, but he has a lot to learn. For example, actor Ed Begley Jr. is the guy to call if you want to reduce your environmental impact. Jeff does, and it changes everything. He hopes that being healthy and green ...
