Paperback Pre-orders

Just realized that the paperback version of the book is already available for preorder on Amazon.com (and probably elsewhere). See here. I've changed my book link on the left hand margin to go to the paperback preorder page, rather than to the hardcover page as it has done for the last nine months or so. The paperback itself will be out towards the end of August.

Note: For the hardcover version of The Republican War on Science, online pre-orders were a big factor in building momentum for the book. I even made Amazon's list for most pre-ordered titles. For the paperback, I'm not going to push pre-orders all that hard quite yet because it's still early. But come August 1 or thereabouts, expect to find me flogging this a lot more...

P.S.: Paperbacks are also amazingly cheap....

OK, I did it. I think that the changes you have made are substantial enough to warrant checking out the paperback as well. Now, when we finally meet somewhere, you'll have to autograph both copies!
