"congestion coalition, glowing vomit, level playing field theory, sex with dogs, culture boom" (Veiled Sub and Book Pitch)


Those are among the "statistically improbable phrases" (SIPs) that Amazon has located in Choice: The Best of Reason, the anthology that is available in both paperback and hardcover editions at super-low prices–and that's not even mentioning a great combo book-and-subscription deal that will blow your mind while leaving your wallet as fat as the modal American.

For more info on the book and magazine that The Onion's Joe Garden has called "an oasis of sharp writing and sensible political discourse in a time dominated by I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I-manship," click here.

  1. Wow. I want this.

  2. Looks like Amazon has now deemed your book un-search-worthy. I also notice it isn’t selling as well as say this

  3. “I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I-manship” is so statistically improbable as to be functionally impossible.

  4. Nick, you shameless whore! 🙂 Keep up the good work!

  5. Choice: The Best of Reason is an intellectual banquet, but I’m just not so sure that quoting the phrases, “glowing vomit” and “sex with dogs” in this thread is a good marketing strategy. But then again, I shouldn’t give any marketing advice. It would have never occurred to me that books titled: “…. for Dummies” would sell.

  6. I know a coreligionist of mine who might be interested in one of those phrases… 😉

  7. the book and magazine that The Onion’s Joe Garden has called “an oasis of sharp writing and sensible political discourse in a time dominated by I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I-manship,”

    I’ve only been reading Reason for 2 years, but given that (1) I like what I’ve read thus far and (2) somebody from the Onion has endorsed it! I think I’ll need to get Choice at some point.
