Every illustration is accompanied by a brief and witty explanatory text that includes the origin of the expression, an anecdote relating to it, and a social commentary. This compilation is at the intersection of knowledge, art, and entertainment. Its concept is original because it bridges philosophy, science, economy, and pop culture. Its goal is deeply pedagogic for it aims at making knowledge accessible for young adults. 

Did you know that chaos is actually ordered, or that language shapes the way we think? Do you know which came first, the chicken or the egg? Donkey #3 looks at serious questions that have puzzled intellectuals such as Plato, Schopenhauer, and Einstein. It describes the origin stories of fascinating expressions such as The Butterfly Effect, the Boiling Frog Syndrome, or the Crocodile Dilemma. These stories are embedded in engaging narratives. They are vested in a casual tone with a zest of sarcasm. It is profound, concise, and amusing.
