So we hear people like Minecraft…

Minecraft_2nd_paperoverboard_mech_draft_B-1_1024x1024In 2013, we were delighted to publish Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus “Notch” Persson and the Game that Changed Everything.  The results were pretty huge: the book was praised as “a celebration of the power of imagination and creativity,” its authors were cheered for their detailed portrait of a game designer who was “more like a musician or a painter,” and tens of thousands of copies flew off shelves — sometimes faster than we could print ‘em.

Since the publication, half a century ago, of Ralph’s landmark Unsafe at any Speed (by which he initiated the consumer movement, in Curry’s words, “as just one guy banging away at a typewriter”), he has been perhaps America’s foremost voice of conscience and public sobriety, a champion of working- and middle-class Americans, and the unofficial First Citizen of our republic.

When things get serious, Ralph’s who you want around.
