We wrote The Other Side: How Proverbs Challenges the World as We Know It because we believe that the notion of Wisdom — originally intended to provoke — has lost some of its edge in the popular imaginary. So we decided to try our hand at illuminating these aphorisms anew, specifically through story, essay, and visualization.

“My best definition of a nerd: someone who asks you to explain an aphorism.” -Nassim Taleb

This book is not for nerds. It is a book for the daring and the subversive. Combining short story, theological essays, and sixty visualizations, this book marshals both word and image in its aim to dare the reader to consider the other side beyond the mundane boundaries of right and wrong.
