The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity finally published in English

Last April I wrote THIS post in praise of the genius of Carlo M. Cipolla and his Theory of Stupidity. As I said there, I was surprised to discover that his seminal work about stupidity was not published in English, and I even proceeded to translate his famous chart (which you can see at the bottom of this post). 

Today I discovered that this lamentable gap is finally going to be filled by Il Mulino publishing house, and an English edition of The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity will finally be available on Amazon starting from November 3rd. Don't miss it! The world will be much easier to understand, after you've read this little gem.
For those of you who read Italian, HERE's the article from Il Sole 24 Ore that talks about it.
