E-book (and Free Companion Book) Available in English from Humanist Press

Under the tagline Be Smart About Being Happy, the American Humanist Association and its publishing branch Humanist Press sent their press release to announce that Tending the Epicurean Garden is now available via their webpage as an e-book.

Humanist Press has a heavy focus on e-book technology. The paperback had been available from months on amazon, but what makes the HP e-book a worthwhile investment for people who are interested in the profiting from their Epicurean studies is that readers who buy the e-book directly from Humanist Press will be able to leave comments on the book which, once approved, become forever part of the work.

In addition to this, Lucretius by WH Mallock, with commentary has been made available by HP as a free companion volume to Tending the Garden.

On Avoiding the Middle East

When the United States was discovered for the Anglo Saxon world, Colombus came here on a mission, he was trying to find a way to India by avoiding the Middle East. Now this was 500 or more years ago. They were avoiding the Middle East. Shouldn't we learn something?  
And Colombus was willing to defy science because at that time they believe you could fall of the Earth because it was flat. But he was willing to fall off the Earth rather than go through the Middle East.

Epicuro en español

The first Spanish-language review of my book has posted, and it’s very positive and foreboding of good things to come. The Spanish version of the book is available inpaperback and Kindle editions. Additionally in recent weeks, a Spanish-language webpage for Society of Epicurus has been created, as well as a Spanish-language facebook group for the Sociedad de Amigos de Epicuro. 
The review was done by Alan Furth, who resides in Buenos Aires, Argentina and is a blogger for Las Indias. He gives an extended overview of the key points of my contemporary interpretation of Epicurean doctrine:
El libro es una resumida pero muy completa introducción a los principios básicos y la práctica del epicureísmo. Pero también brinda una interesante interpretación de las enseñanzas de Epicuro desde el punto de vista de la psicología positiva, la neurociencia y otras disciplinas científicas que hoy en día corroboran gran parte del legado del maestro. 
”The book is a summarized but very complete introduction to the basic principles and practice of Epicureanism. But it also brinds an interesting interpretation of the teachings of Epicurus from the perspective of positive psychology, neuroscience, and other scientific disciplines that today vindicate great part of the legacy of the Master.”
Read the entire review. Use google translate (or any other online translation service) if you don’t understand Spanish.
