Right now it's in Bernie's head and soon to be in his computer. The release date is Nov 13^th.

As for his other works, here's what you can do:
Step 1: Go to your local library's contact page (now is a good time).
Step 2: Contact them and ask them to order copies of:

> Where Do We Go From Here ISBN 978-1250163264
An Outsider in the White House ISBN 978-1784784188
> [Our Revolution]( ISBN 978-1250132925
The Speech: On Corporate Greed and the Decline of Our Middle Class ISBN 978-1568585536
> * Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution ISBN 978-1250138903

Step 3: Smile that public funds are supporting the political revolution and disseminating our message.
Step 4: Pass on the idea if you think it worthwhile.
Step 5: Lean into standing up, exercising your voice, and fighting for what you believe in.

I wasn't aware that you could use tax dollars to buy books on Amazon. Could you please tell me how you go about doing that? Or do you have no idea what you are talking about?

His wife was devoutly religious and incredibly intelligent. She copyedited his work and her input helped Origin of a Species become the book that people remember as opposed to the guy who came out with basically the same theory at the same time. What's his name again?

For those interested, Charles and Emma is a fantastic and hugely accessible read about Darwin's relationship with his wife and how it shaped his work.

EDIT: Replied to OP instead of in this conversation thread.

not an american, no dare where i'm from, but in biology class we had to give presentations about a drug we could choose. i talked about weed. lsd was from a pretty intelligent friend of mine and it really hooked me up. since then i always wanted to try it. when i finally did in my psychedelics phase it was wonderful (but psychedelics fucked me up some times and it's fucking hard to handle bad trips. shrooms, acid and others can be wonderful but be warned, that stuff is powerful, don't take it lightly, read about it a lot before trying, plan it, make sure set and setting is great and be prepared for a life changing experience.) happy tripping following the white rabbit where ever it leads you :)

christiane f. is a famous real life story of a 13 y/o girl in the 70s. she describes very very raw how she fell into hole of getting h addicted, prostituting herself, loosing her younger sister to heroin and how it fucked her up completely (she still lives and still stuggles but is better, the money from the book - a bestseller - she lost to the drugs though and is poor again). it's a hard read resp. watch as there is a film version with david bowie of it.

this book is often read in school in germany for drug prevention. but i heard pretty often that people got interested and curious in heroin exactly because they read that book in school. there is something about failed drug prevention that most teachers seem to do wrong. sometimes more obvious sometimes less.

What you do is buy a copy of Bernie's book - either Our Revolution: A Future to Believe in or his other book Bernie Sanders' Guide to a Political Revolution.

From there I followed the instructions on their Instagram page:

>Send your copy to the office with a note to Bernie and he will sign it. Please include a return envelope with postage paid. Use the media mail postage rate, its cheaper. Send it to Bernie's campaign office called Friends of Bernie Sanders to PO Box 391, Burlington, VT 05402. It takes a while for him to have time to sign, so please be patient, but he would be happy to sign it for you!

I sent my book in a box and included a 10 X 14.5in. self-addressed postage paid bubble envelope so that after Bernie signed it, they could return it to me. Also, it took about 2 and a half months for me to have the book sent back, so it will take a while. But it's worth it for a signed Bernie book if you ask me! <3

Pedro and Me

For those interested, this is a graphic novel written by Judd Winick (who is now a full-time comics creator working for DC) about his friendship with Pedro Zamora. Not directly related to Sean, but I thought I would post this since I know both had an impact on the gay community at the time, and it was interesting to see the first-person, personal impact they had on one other cast member.

Zoo Station: The Story of Christian F


u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

He wrote a great book for young adults about his experiences called "Flying to the Moon"

Got me interested in space travel as a kid, and I have been pretty invested in it ever since. If you have a kid in your life who loves science, I can't recommend it enough, he is a very engaging writer, no matter your age.

u/VoodooDarling · 3 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

[Tomboy: A Memoir] ( by Liz Prince is an excellent read. Not sure I can share any specific stories, but definitely was (and often still am) non-gender conforming.

u/AuthorOfTheFuture · 3 pointsr/SandersForPresident

In his new book Bernie defines Socialism as

"A central government controls the production and distribution of goods to establish an equitable distribution of labor and property."

u/Gars0n · 2 pointsr/MadeMeSmile

There's also a book. There's also a book.

u/Random_Fandom · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Here you go: Flying to the Moon: An Astronaut's Story [Kindle Edition]

e: I just realized you may have meant, "Carrying the Fire: An Astronaut's Journeys." I don't see a kindle version of that one, either.

u/Alaira314 · 2 pointsr/pics

It depends on the camp, I think. When I was in middle school, I was morbidly obsessed with the holocaust(I think because I was trying to comprehend how it could have happened, it was just so cruel and shocking that I couldn't really get my head around it without a great deal of study), and one of the books I read was this memoir. The author described her life in several camps, and one of them was described as a respite from the others, where the prisoners slept in humane(comparatively) dorms, had actual showers, and did cleaning/factory work rather than field labor. Unfortunately I can't recall the name of that place, but I could easily believe this picture was taken at a similar place.

Phillip Hoose has written extensively on her boycott. Additionally, here is an NPR interview with the woman herself.

Can't be worse than this kid: Geoffrey Dilenschneider

The worst poets usually are so bad you never get to hear them. Luckily, this one's father runs a major PR firm.

Hilarious interview with the genius himself

Edit: added interview awesomeness

Pedro and Me taught me that Homophobia is dumb, so I guess you could say it made me a better person.
It's also a great story, even if it's "just a comic book".

Dude, Mo Willems is great. Kinda obscure, but check out the cartoon a day journal he did sometime.

u/ChiliManiac · 1 pointr/books

Basher 52, read it years ago and it was simple, but had a beautiful simplicity about it. Well worth seeing if you can find. I think this will work.

"U.S. Air Force Captain Scott O'Grady was shot down in his F-16 over Bosnia while helping to keep the peace. The plane exploded, and Captain O'Grady fell 5 miles to the ground below. In exciting detail, Captain O'Grady tells how he evaded capture and how, with little water and no food, he was able to survive on his own in enemy territory."

u/gocougs11 · 1 pointr/AskReddit

This isn't really a bad experience with a celebrity, but a bad reaction from a haggard old bitch of a teacher when I told her about it.

When I was in the 4th grade, I met Ollie North and Scott O'grady (Basher 5-2, fighter pilot who was shot down in Bosnia) on a cruise in the Caribbean.

I had recently read Captain O'Grady's book, and happened to have it on the Cruise with me. I got them both to autograph it.

When I told the teacher of my 4th grade class about it back at school the next week, she said "That's nothing you should be proud of." Because she didn't agree with Ollie North's politics.

Seriously, who the fuck says that to a fourth grader?

If you're actually interested in Colvin's story, read Twice Toward Justice.

The book tour he is on now isn't about the book he put out last year after the election. He just put out another book last week, the one I'm talking about, and the book tour for that starts this month / has already started.
