2) You may remember Joe Quirk presenting one of the funniest Future Salons ever about Sociobiology.
He is out with a super cool new book Exult trying to answer the question: Is a life fully lived worth an early death? About a hang glider from Berkeley that is experiencing death and near death and everything in between.
Now you should know that Joe used to hang glide himself and therefore knows his stuff, even though he takes some literary freedom like night flights.
It is a fast passed page turner and keeps you mulling the essential question of how to live ones life.
Now today Saturday the 5th you have the chance to hear him read from his book.

I'll read a harrowing action scene, and the harrowing argument that
I'm also going to talk about the promise and challenges of ebooks and
print-on-demand publishing, and I'm going to break the authors'
silence and address the deep problems with traditional publishing.
Only Books Inc. would allow me-- no, encourage me-- to talk about
this. Gotta tip the hat to Calvin Crosby, store manager.
