What's your small book about?

Philosophical concepts made easy. I used the gimmicks of teleportation and cloning to explain and point out several problems with our notion of self, persistance, and even conscience without it getting too technical and/or heavy. It's quite basic for anyone with an actual interest in philosophy but my objective was to get people out there interested in a subject they might not otherwise be.

There are several problems with our notion of self. Sounds like a good chapter. Is that chapter done?

Somewhat, but it's written in my native tongue. I'm trying to get a translation going but at the moment I'm in the middle of finals and can't be translating my book while I should be studying.
