Quora, the question and answer site that’s been praised for its engaging writing, just sent its top writers a hardcover collection of 100 or so of the best answers published over the past two years, and it’s released the text to the general public as a free PDF.
I’ve not had a chance to read it myself yet, but George Anders at Forbes likes it:
I spent hours this past weekend flipping through an early copy of “The Best of Quora,” and it’s a fascinating, enchanting, exasperating book. The topics are an eye-catching blend of things we already care about … as well as the outlandish and the unthinkable. The writing is unfailingly lucid and zesty.
Quora has been criticized in recent months for taking a Facebook-style approach to privacy by publicly sharing its users’ reading histories without warning, which makes the PDF even more attractive; now you can enjoy the contributions of some of its best writers without the need to give up control over your privacy.
