It's a 5.5"x8.5" paperback. If you open it to a random spot, here's what you'll see: on the left-hand page, some paragraphs from the 1901 version of John Veitch's translation of Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy into English. He's dead enough that it's cheap to print but not so dead his English sucks. On the right-hand page, you'll find the corresponding paragraphs of my version.

In between paragraphs, I've put guided annotations that help you get the most out of the text.

It typically arrives within a week in the United States and within 2 weeks internationally.

When Rene Descartes wrote Meditations on First Philosophy, widely considered the founding text of modern philosophy, he was trying to answer fundamental questions about how we can have knowledge about the world around us. But Descartes wasn't writing for you, he was writing for a bunch of academics three hundred years ago.

Descartes' Meditations, Bro emphasizes readability. It IS written for you, but it's not just wildly entertaining. DMB follows Descartes' arguments step-by-step, weaving contemporary analogies and in-depth explanations of the background assumptions into a comic narrative that parallels the original text paragraph-by-paragraph.
