Félicitations M. Sedgwick ! I was waiting for this translation. I can now recommend an extremely interesting book to my french friends.

Take care ! Portez-vous bien !

Congratulations on the French language edition. It must have taken a very high degree of skill to translate your book into French.

My wish would be to see either a high quality paperback edition or...better yet, a second edition.

A paperback edition would help to make Against the Modern World more affordable, both to readers and to libraries.

PS: Must mention that Against the Modern World is one of the few books I have found where even the footnotes are entertaining.

Ive told people that a book that is hated by 50% of the reviewers and loved by 50% of the viewers is worth reading--its a signal that the author has done something right.

No Italian translation, I'm afraid.
