A young Henry Ford pitches the gasoline engine to Thomas Edison. Edison replies: 'Young man. You have the thing. Keep at it' Ford writes, much later: 'No man up to then had given me any encouragement'

Hey man. That’s probably not true, but thanks for saying it.

“Most of the books I have written... originate from the thought that it will be impossible for me to write a book of that kind: when I have convinced myself such a book is completely beyond my capacities of temperament or skill, I sit down and start writing it.” Italo Calvino.

Actually, yes. I'm at a store called Diesel in Santa Monica at 6:30 pm on July 23. Which I think is technically Brentwood, so maybe O.J. will show up.

The thing is, selling books is really weird now. Selling 1 book before the release date seems way more important than selling 5 books the month after it's been in stores. If I were smart, I would tour while I'm still writing the book and just type on-stage.

Also, the first 500 people who do this will get a "signed book plate." Which is just a sticker that I signed with a Sharpie. But you can adhere this sticker to the inside cover, and this magically turns your book into a "limited first edition," increasing its eventual eBay value.

If you pre-order my book (or if you've already done so), you can fill out the little form on the link accompanying this tweet and the publisher will immediately send you a digital copy of one of the stories:

Hot takes on Ocean Telegraph from 1858. THREAD: Summary - What good has telegraph done? - Telegraph already caused vast injury to mind & morals - Telegraph too fast for truth - News in 10 days is better than news in 10 mins - Hearing of dead relatives sooner INCREASES suffering

If you're looking for some get-off-my-lawn reading, I wrote about life during loudness wartime and how the sound of our own wheels may be making us crazy.
