My 96 pages of fame

Finally I get the recognition I deserve: somebody has written a book about me!

Of course, this probably *is* the recognition I deserve: the book seems to be autogenerated content based on my Wikipedia page. The "author" Jordan Naum is also the author of such best-sellers as "Jazz Funeral", "Symerton, Illinois", "Transport in Luxembourg" and the must-read "Diving at the 2012 Summer Olympics - Women's Synchronized 10 Metre". $46.17 for some compiled articles might seem steep, but apparently the system has managed to produce *96* pages about me! I'm not sure I could write that much about myself.

I also like the cover, where my hands (or rather, a stunt double) are seen doing my characteristic handwaving.

Once upon a time you had to write a book to get into the vanity press. Today vanity books write themselves. The number of readers, however, remain constant.
