It’s about, um, Transformations. It’s an anthropological account of how we cultivate any self, how we make the transformation from self to self, and how we cultivate several selves at once.
It has taken about a decade to bring to the light of day. But, finally, here it is.
As I say, it won’t be available till the fall, but it can be preordered from Amazon now. See the link below.

Thanks to Pam, my wife, for designing the cover. Thanks to Richard Shear and Joe Melchione for producing it. Good, eh?
