 About the Book 

If Steve Jobs designed a utopian community, had it filtered by Lewis Black and then painted by Picasso, it would look like Walden 3.0.Jacob Botticelli is a young reporter who’s been asked to tell the story of Walden 3.0, a secretive, self-sustainingMoreIf Steve Jobs designed a utopian community, had it filtered by Lewis Black and then painted by Picasso, it would look like Walden 3.0.Jacob Botticelli is a young reporter who’s been asked to tell the story of Walden 3.0, a secretive, self-sustaining community in Vermont with its own unique culture, educational and healthcare systems, religious beliefs, and economic structure. Almost immediately, Jacob’s head swirls with revelations that the monogamy of the outside world has been replaced with serial marriage- parenting is a communal responsibility- death panels are a reality- and everyone gets to be god for a day. The more Jacob learns of Waldens ways, the more uncertain he becomes of his own beliefs and the life he wants to lead.Torn from todays headlines, Walden 3.0 offers a worldview that will alternately delight and dismay pretty much everyone. Rather than the traditional Red State-Blue State blather, this no-holds-barred, Purple-State black comedy aims its sights on parenting, romantic love, higher education, gay marriage, universal healthcare, circumcision, the bloated legal system, organized religion, reality television, social networking, conspiracy theories, plastic surgery, and much more.
