RE: Book Suggestions for Richard Brodie

This is a guaranteed best seller because of the large existing
memetically prepared market i.e. Trekkies :-

"The Role of Memes in 'Star Trek : First Contact'"
- The Borg : A Memetically Engineered Species
(Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated into buying this book)

For old film buffs :-

"The Role of Bean Memes in 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers'"
- Peas in a Pod : A Memetically Engineered Invasion
(You'll be next to buy this book. And You! And You!)
