Woohoo, it's out! Ad Nauseam: A Survivor's Guide to American Consumer Culture

Ad-nauseam-avatar At long last, the book Jason and I have been working on for a couple of years is now available for purchase: Ad Nauseam: A Survivor's Guide to American Consumer Culture. You will like it.

We have also erected a website, where you can see the table of contents and read the foreword—by the superfine New York Times Magazine columnist Rob Walker—and preface. 

Much to my dismay, the book does not include an index but I am fast at work correcting the matter (which is to say, making one myself) and will post it shortly.
