Apocalypse How

A couple of days ago, I got email from Rob Kutner, who is a writer for my 11 p.m. weekday ritual, The Daily Show. He sent his thanks for my (unsolicited) plug for Jewno and asked if I could plug his new book, Apocalypse How, which he describes as “my new book about how much better things are going to be after the end of the world”.
