30 Awesome Book Dedications That Might Be Better Than The Actual Book

27. Peter Leeson, ‘The Invisible Hook: The Hidden Economics of Pirates’

Ania, I love you, will you marry me?

28. Victor Wooten, ‘The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth Through Music’

WARNING

Everything in this book

may be

all wrong.

But if so,

it’s

all right!

29. Neil Gaiman, ‘Anansi Boys’

You know how it is. You pick up a book, flip to the dedication, and find that, once again, the author has dedicated a book to someone else and not to you.

Not this time.

Because we haven’t yet met/have only a glancing acquaintance/are just crazy about each other/haven’t seen each other in much too long/are in some way related/will never meet, but will, I trust, despite that, always think fondly of each other….

This one’s for you.

With you know what, and you probably know why.

30. Sean Carroll, ‘The Particle at the End of the Universe’

To Mom,
Who took me to the library. TC mark
