A very talented movie/commerical/trailer editor, who for some bizarre reason insists on going nameless (but if you want his coordinates, don’t hesitate to ping me) assisted by Ben Fisher in a major role (finding images and video clips) and Richard Smith in a minor role (extensive sanity checking) put this together.

If you want to download an HD version (even more gorgeous), . If you don’t find the download process obvious, .
For some reason, the video does not show up when you search at YouTube, which is weird, I’ve asked people who understand YouTube tell me what to do to remedy that. But the video can also be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIQFPkH3ILI
Update: If you want to help (aside from buying the book, of course), forward the YouTube link (as opposed to URL for this post) to friends and family and play it again yourself there.
