For the second year in a row, the 2012 Edge Annual Question book, This Explains Everything: 150 Deep Beautiful, And Elegant Theories Of How The World Works —HarperCollins, 2013—(http://amzn.to/1hkdL2y), has made the main Amazon Bestseller list (all titles, fiction & nonfiction). Last year it was #8; and in April it re-appeared at #23 on the overall list and #1 on Amazon's Best Sellers in Science & Math. 

And it continues. The recently published book on the 2013 Q: What *Should* We Be Worried About: Real Scenarios That Keep Scientists Awake At Night (http://amzn.to/OlfJbC), hit #3 on the Los Angeles Times nonfiction paperback list and also made appearences on the NPR and IndieBound lists. And if the stream of global press about Edge is a reliable indicator, the series, and the Edge website itself, is now a global phenomenon. 

Next: We have just delivered the manuscript for What Scientific Ideas Should Be Retired? to our international publishers. To date, editions are in the works in the following languages: English (US/UK markets), German, Dutch, Korean, Croatian, Spanish (World), Japanese, Chinese, Romanian, and Russian.  —JB
