Listen to British rocker Jarvis Cocker read the story "Descent of Species" from Sum. He is one of the dozens of terrific voices who read for the audio book. Jarvis is known for his raw and edgy albums such as Jarvis and Further Complications.
I have been asked in the past to list ten books that have "inspired, moved, and enlightened" me. Here's my list:
Hear my friend Alan Burdick discuss his new book on time perception...
Interested in synesthesia? Watch a lecture I gave at the University of Sydney in Australia.
Can we reproduce our brains on other media (say, on computers, or out of beer cans and tennis balls)?
Why should the US invest in brain science? See David's opinion in the New York Times.
Barnes and Noble selected SUM as one of the Best Books of the Year.
David's iPad app "Why the Net Matters, or Six Ways to Avert the Collapse of Civilization" was recently called a "superbook" by the New York Times Magazine. For a taste of the argument, read David's article in WIRED or watch a video of his talk at the Long Now Foundation. Don't have an iPad? The manuscript is now available as an eBook.
