WMD galleys!

April 13, 2016

I’m super excited to announce that galleys for my book Weapons of Math Destruction: how big data increases inequality and threatens democracy, available for pre-order on Amazon, or from Barnes and Noble, are now out.

Galleys aren’t the real book, they’re preliminary versions made explicitly for people who might want to review the book, who might want to blurb the book, or who will spread the word about how great it is. I have some copies (technically these are proofs, and the galleys are somewhat more edited):


This pic is blurry because I immediately started drinking upon receiving the packages.

I know, I know, it’s mean of me to show you this when the actual book isn’t available until September 6th, but what can I say, I’m kind of mean. Plus, if you come over I’ll give you one, so I’m not that mean.

To celebrate I intend to go on a bike ride through Central Park, it’s a gorgeous day!

    Can we assume you’ll be going on some sort of book tour in Sept.? (you need to get it done before Nov. just in case all your fans have to slit their wrists following the Nov. elections)

    Is there a way to get this book without patronizing major book publishing organizations? Somehow I get the impression that me giving Amazon / B+N free data about my purchases will come back to me in the end.

      The book will be sold in normal bookstores after it’s released. You can pay in cash, but don’t let the surveillance cameras worry you.

    I’m close to the eastern border of Texas, but the drive through Virginia is just too long, so I won’t be coming over. Good luck with the book. Besides, I’d have to park my car in Croton-on-the-Hudson, I can’t pay $50 a day for parking in NYC.

    September 6th! That’s my birthday! And a major one: I turn 40! The book would certainly be a nice gift. 😉
