About the author


Mark Mathew Braunstein is the author of four other propagandizing books that have exceeded their life expectancies by remaining in print even to this day. He also has scribed more than a hundred ephemeral articles in trashy consumerist magazines, most of which have since folded, and in obscure pedantic academic journals, all written with his intent to save the world, though now he is content to save both his breath and his ink. If he lives that long, he will die too soon. Until that inevitable end, as he believes neither in an afterlife nor in aftershave, he aspires to live out the rest of his earthly existence as a very hairy and very healthy corpse. Visit him at his gravesite or, if you cannot wait, at his website. www.MarkBraunstein.Org
