Idea for a new book series

The series would cover notoriously confusing or strange topics and be called the “Seriously, WTF?” series. Titles might include David Lynch: Seriously, WTF? or Quantum Physics: Seriously, WTF?

These books would represent an advance over the “For Dummies” and “Idiot’s Guide” series insofar as they recognize that the obstacle to understanding lies in the object being examined rather than in the reader.

  2. I would like to pre-order Financial Markets: Seriously, WTF? for myself, and then additional copies for the people who man them.

  4. I feel that at least one truly awesome X: Seriously, WTF? title is out there somewhere in the problem space, but has yet to be discovered. My initial X‘s were things like “Deleuze”, “Radical Orthodoxy” and “Sesame Street”, but nothing I’ve come up with so far has had quite the resonance I’m sure this formula is capable of.
