The Collapse of Time: Confessions of a Quantum Humanist, now available as a Kindle book

On September 11, 2001, writer Gregory Pleshaw watched the Twin Towers fall on a television screen inside a sailboat parked in San Francisco Harbor. Recently returned from Burning Man, Pleshaw scuttled plans to go to New York City and instead traded a tower computer for a GMC van and drove up the coast for a three-year odyssey that included San Francisco and Seattle. In that time he wrote a number of interesting essays and launched one of his all-time favorite projects, “Wish Paper.” The musings of this period were put together in 2004 as a subscriber-financed independent paperback and are now available for the first time as Kindle book for the low low price of $5.23. Check it out.

    I am a bookworm, love to read books by different authors. One of my friends mentioned your books and I thought about checking it out. I was wondering if ‘The Collapse of Time’ would be available in print version. I don’t have a Kindle and won’t be able to buy one in the near future. Any plans of releasing the printed version? I would like to know if a preview of your book is available, as I didn’t find it on the Amazon page. Thanks.

    Looks like it could be an interesting read – cool cover design for the book. I’ve never heard the term “Quantum Humanist” before, but it sounds like an interesting idea and experience.

    It’s great to see that in our day and time you can still find people like Gregory. Although the beat generation is long gone, Gregory decided to take on a seemingly epic adventure: just a man, his GMC van and thoughts on a paper. This book looks like a breath of fresh air and I look forward to reading it.

    Im sure seeing the “collapse” is amazing and scary at the same time but Gregory took it an as adventure and viola shared it to everyone! I hope others could be so courageous like what Gregory did for this experience! I find it interesting also, so not only Im commenting on this but I will find the book soon and read it! and Im already getting the vibe of “2-thumbs up”!!
