Summary

“Like many of my colleagues, I felt that I could easily have been the Unabomber's next target. He is clearly a Luddite, but simply saying this does not dismiss his argument. . . . As difficult as it is for me to acknowledge, I saw some merit in the reasoning in [Kaczynski’s writing]. I started showing friends the Kaczynski quote from Ray Kurzweil’s The Age of Spiritual Machines; I would hand them Kurzweil's book, let them read the quote, and then watch their reaction as they discovered who had written it.” — Bill Joy, founder of Sun Microsystems, in “Why the Future Doesn’t Need Us,” Wired magazine 
Theodore J. Kaczynski has been convicted for illegally transporting, mailing, and using bombs, resulting in the deaths of three people. He is now serving a life sentence in the supermax prison in Florence, Colorado. 
The ideas and views expressed by Kaczynski before and after his capture raise crucial issues concerning the evolution and future of our society. For the first time, the reader will have access to an uncensored personal account of his anti-technology philosophy, which goes far beyond Unabomber pop culture mythology. 
Feral House does not support or justify Kaczynski's crimes, nor does the author receive royalties or compensation for this book. It is this publisher’s mission, as well as a foundation of the First Amendment, to allow the reader the ability to discern the value of any document. 
David Skrbina, who wrote the introduction, teaches philosophy at the University of Michigan, Dearborn.

    The nightly news and conventional wisdom tell us that things are bad and getting worse. Yet despite dire predictions, scientists see many good things on the horizon. John Brockman, publisher of Edge (www.edge.org), the influential online salon, recently asked more than 150 high-powered scientific thinkers to answer a vital question for our frequently pessimistic times: "What are you optimistic about?" 
    Spanning a wide range of topics—from string theory to education, from population growth to medicine, and even from global warming to the end of world—What Are You Optimistic About? is an impressive array of what world-class minds (including Nobel Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, New York Times bestselling authors, and Harvard professors, among others) have weighed in to offer carefully considered optimistic visions of tomorrow. Their provocative and controversial ideas may rouse skepticism, but they might possibly change our perceptions of humanity's future.

    If youre medically curious, then youll love the treasure trove of 
    information that Dr. Larry Romane shares in this little book. 
     
    This longtime ER doctor has always been surprised at how little people know about medical matters, but he knows that knowledge can be challenging to grasp when doctors call a heart attack an acute myocardial infarction and a simple toothache an anaerobic gingival abscess 
    Romane cuts through that jargon to answer questions such as: 
    
    Why is everyone getting diabetes? 
    Are brand name medicines safer than generic versions? 
    Do you need antibiotics for upper respiratory infections?
     
    
     
    He also shares valuable insights, such as: A pound of fat contains about 3,500 caloriesso cutting 100 calories every day for a year would take off about ten pounds; X-rays may cause future DNA changes in a cell, leading to cancer decades in the future; and only about five percent of dog bites get infected versus sixty percent of cat bitesanother reason a dog is mans best friend. 
    
     
    Youll be surprised by all the medical information you dont know  some of it quite useful  in R U Medically Curious?
