The Book: A Cover-to-Cover Exploration of the Most Powerful Object of Our Time is published today in the UK!* You can order a hardback or digital copy from Amazon The Book Depository, W. W. Norton UK or Waterstones, or you can find it in all good bookshops. Learn more here, or read an extract over at Medium.
There are many people to thank for helping make this happen: my agent Laurie Abkemeier; Brendan Curry, Sophie Duvernoy, Nathanial Dennett, Will Scarlett and Anna Oler at W. W. Norton USA; Emily Cary-Elwes, Judith Pamplin et al at W. W. Norton UK; Judith Abbate, David High and Brad Walrod for design and composition; and Rachelle Mandik for copyediting. And of course, my wife Leigh helped out at every stage — she has read The Book cover to cover many times over by now, and it’s all the better for it.
- For North American readers, the US edition will follow on August 23rd. ↢
