Reviews, Reviews, How to Cover All of the Reviews?
Today, Newsweek hits the stands with an article about Paul Offit, author of Autism's False Prophets. You can—and should—read the article here: http://www.newsweek.com/id/165644.
What I love about this article is that it is not just about the book. It's about the author and talks about the fact that Paul is a real guy who loves children and has been motivated throughout his career by his childhood experiences to become a doctor and help children. Click the link above and read it for yourself, then click the link below and buy the book. It's an imporant read for any parent and anyone wondering why drugs are so expensive. Imagine having to factor into the pricing of any medication the potential lawsuits that could come, even if the medication is proven safe!
Also getting a great review today is Patrick K. O'Donnell's The Brenner Assignment. Publishers Weekly reviewed it online at http://www.publishersweekly.com/article/CA6608700.html?industryid=47142.
The review says, among other great things, "O’Donnell provides an insightful look into the internal struggles of the burgeoning OSS as well as a real-life espionage adventure of bravery, ingenuity and sacrifice."
Pick this one up and learn how they did it in the old days. No smart bombs, no laser-guided, nap-of-the-earth-flying missles. Just brains and big brass ones....
