Make Love, Not Porn: Technology’s Hardcore Impact on How We Act

Last month, TED made a bold first move into publishing with the launch of TEDBooks — a revolutionary model for adapting the most compelling TED talks into low-priced ebooks under Amazon’s new Kindle Singles imprint for short nonfiction. Today, we’re thrilled for the release of Make Love Not Porn: Technology’s hardcore impact on human behavior — the excellent new TEDBook by our friend Cindy Gallop, whose project of the same name tackles one of the most underaddressed yet important facets of contemporary culture.

Sample the book with Cindy’s fantastic 2009 TED talk:

Coupling TED’s unshakable curatorial vetting with the radically low price point, we hope Make Love Not Porn will serve as a potent conversation starter for wrapping our collective mind around an issue we have failed to address intelligently, even though it permeates nearly every aspect of our lives, from our media habits to our private selves to our public personas.
