Nonfiction Short Take: The World According to Star Wars – Cass Sunstein

Yes, that Cass Sunstein…advisor to presidents, Harvard professor and bestselling author of books on behavioral economics and political science. Why? Walter Isaacson explains:

Star Wars is the ultimate mythological tale of our age, a hero’s journey that is a tribute to the beauty of human freedom as well as an exploration of its dark complexities. In this gem of a book, the brilliant Cass Sunstein uses the series to explore profound questions about being a parent, a child, and a human. It will change the way you think about your own journey, and it might even make you pick up the phone and call your dad.”

Take that tip from Mr. Isaacson and put this on Father’s Day and Graduation tables. Good coverage is starting now: The New Republic, NYT, Washington Post, Morning Joe, Charlie Rose,,,,,, and

“Sunstein’s analytical prowess combines with what is clearly a deep love of Star Wars…He takes battles long fought in college dorms and Reddit threads and elevates them to a higher level…The ultimate primer for guiding a Star Wars padawan to the level of Jedi Knight.”
