The Myth of Disenchantment Errata


The proud author with his advance copy!

The new book–The Myth of Disenchantment–is hot off the press and it looks awesome! Order your copy here (or here in the UK). I’m totally enthralled with the cover image by the excellent Alex Gross and have wonderful things to say about the whole process of publishing with the University of Chicago Press. But there was a small miscommunication during the copyediting phase and a few of my corrections never got input, plus I missed some things (mea culpa). So I’m going to use this page to track errata and typos. I’ll update it periodically. The press tells me they’ll be corrected in the second print run.
