Overview

Portable Po-Mo, Disposable Derrida, Foucault-to-Go.
This tiny manual provides an introduction to theoretical posturing, a commentary on postmodernism, a subversive satire, and a tribute to the love-hate relationship many of us have with fashionable ideas — all in a very few words. Like postmodernism itself, Life's Little Deconstruction Book is a work of inspired piracy, melding cutting-edge cultural theory with the corporate and computer lingos that permeate our lives. Infused with humor, intellectual rigor, and a certain poetic sensibility, it provides day-by-day instruction for the contemporary scene, requiring no commitment, yet still delivering intellectually.
