AutoSummarize is an artist book by Jason Huff that features the top one-hundred, most downloaded copyright-free eBooks from Project Gutenberg circa March 2010, each book summarized down to a handful of sentences using Microsoft Word 2008's AutoSummarize function. The results are beautifully broken — absurd, funny, apt and poetical.

This redesigned second edition, published at the advent of major breakthroughs in AI systems, includes a foreword written by ChatGPT and a barcode-based image generated by DALL•E.
