Congrats, Bruce! Can't wait to give it a read.

The American amazon page says the book has not been released and will not be until September. Is this the case?

Bruce Charlton said...

@B - That's what it says - I think there will be a Kindle version before that. But authors are the last to know about such matters!

Same with the Canadian Amazon page, which for Canadians is here

I really look forward to reading this. It seems a very central question of modernity why we can't be comfortable with our own company and thoughts. So imagine how fascinated I was to read this article a few days later in the Washington Post. "Most men would rather shock themselves than be alone with their thoughts" http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2014/07/03/most-men-would-rather-shock-themselves-than-be-alone-with-their-thoughts/

This study seems to confirm what you've been pointing out for a long time.
