How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog in the Wild

Hey, you might not know this, but I wrote a book

The official release date for How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog isn’t until Tuesday, but a friend reported buying a copy in Missouri, so when I was headed out to do some work this afternoon, I went to the cafe at the local Barnes&Noble so I could check for myself, and there it was:


That’s How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog spotted in the wild. I’m not going to say “in its natural habitat,” because it’s really a domestic animal, which belongs in a loving home, with people to care for it. Copies in the bookstore are feral editions, which need to be tracked down, taken in, and adopted.

So, please, head down to your local store, and take one home, won’t you? You could even arrange to have one sent directly to you, from one of the nice retailers linked at
