Brockman2Nope, we’re not talk­ing about U2. We’re talk­ing about
John Brockman.
And just who is he? He’s the lit­er­ary agent of the
intel­lec­tu­al stars. He is to the think­ing world what Scott Boras is to base­ball.
If you’re a major sci­en­tif­ic thinker, and if you can write for the

he’ll land you a major book deal. And you’ll be in good com­pa­ny.
Brock­man rep­re­sents Richard Dawkins (the author of the cur­rent
best­seller, The God Delu­sion), Jared Dia­mond (Guns, Germs & Steel), and Daniel Gole­man (Emo­tion­al Intel­li­gence), just to name a

and also a great video trove fea­tur­ing many promi­nent sci­en­tif­ic
thinkers talk­ing about what they know best. Take a look around and
you’ll like­ly get the intel­lec­tu­al fix that you’re look­ing for.
