Making books is fun!
Back before inkjets, printing was a time-comsuming laborious process, that took teams of people working together to produce just one book. Now days, any crabby person can sit at home and crank out stuff on a blog or even make internet video. This movie will make you happy as you watch others toil for 'The Man' under primitive conditions.

Best Seller Differences (robinsloan.com)
I’m interested in the differences between the markets for digital and physical books. This page updates once a week, when the New York Times Best Sellers list is released. It uses the Best Sellers API to compare the e-book and hardcover lists and highlight books unique to each of them. If the API provides a link to a Times review, it’s also included here.

Timothy Ferriss - ‘The 4-Hour Body’ - Review - NYTimes.com
How can Mr. Ferriss can get away with touting so many practices that are outside medicine’s mainstream? He seems to think of himself as a kind of Twitter-era Johnny Appleseed or Hans and Franz, wandering the planet, pumping you up, making orgasms sweeter and abs six-packier. He quotes one doctor who says to him, “You — Tim Ferriss — can do more outside the system than inside it.”

Book Review - Hellhound on His Trail - By Hampton Sides - NYTimes.com
Early on, Galt is less interested in King than in prostitutes, cheap booze, self- improvement books, a nose job and entering the pornography business. He’s every bit as big a loser as Lee Harvey Oswald — the two are so weirdly similar it’s as if they shared a locker at Lone Gunman School — but at least James Earl Ray knows how to have a good time.
