My "Memetics" book on Google Books

My "Memetics" book has shown up on Google Books.

Chapters 5-14 (pages 48-120) are browsable - which is a fairly significant chunk of the book. Much of the rest of the text of the book can be searched.

The pictures came through in colour. However, I can't say I approve of them missing off the covers of the book.


  1. I'm puzzled about something. Your book is a set of related memes and I gather that you want it to flourish. Yet the outer shell of this packet of memes prominently features a highly unpleasant image — a crying baby. This, it seems to me, will make a lot of people move on, having judged the book by its cover.

    Why did you (or somebody) pick a book cover that would evoke negative emotions?

  2. Crying babies also attract attention. For a more in-depth discussion, see the video: "Memetics - first proofs".
