My second book is a tribute to classroom filmstrips — if you were born before 1980, you probably remember them. I loved the way they condensed lessons down to a few dozen beautiful illustrations, photos, and sentences. They instantly transported me back to a simpler time. In researching this book, I came to wonder why we were being taught the lessons they contained. That led me to study the issues of the day, to uncover how education, politics and propaganda converge. Selected by Amazon as one of the funniest books of the year, it’s odd and beautiful and truly one of a kind. And you can get one of your own right here.
