Trekonomics is OUT!

Dear all, 

Thanks to your support the book is out everywhere on the internet and in bookstores. 

I wrote this for John Scalzi, author of Red Shirts, honorary dean of American science fiction and former pillar of Tiki’s Lounge in Hyde Park (those of you from Chicago will know what I mean).

Please tell share what you think of the book. If you get the chance, write a few words at Amazon. 

Tomorrow I am taping an interview with NPR’s Marketplace at their Downtown LA studios. This should be most interesting.

In the meantime, thank you again for your help and encouragements. This would not have been possible without you all.

Live long, and prosper.

Manu

In Star Trek we see a lot ox examples of many types of money.

Got my ebook last week and got my hardcover today.  I had been considering donating the physical copy to my local library, but then when I held it in my hands, I decided to keep it for my shelves.  \

Congrats on selling 2000 copies!
