Today on Good Morning America, Science writer Gary Taubes counted Good Calories, Bad Calories: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom on Diet, Weight and Disease (Knopf, $27.95). Said PW’s starred review: “His call for dietary advice that is based on rigorous science, not century-old preconceptions about the penalties of gluttony and sloth is bound to be echoed loudly by many readers."
Ann Patchett stopped by The Leonard Lopate Show with her latest novel, Run (HarperCollins, $25.95). In a PW Signature Review, Andrew O'Hagan wrote “the book is lovely to read and is satisfyingly bold in its attempt to say something patient and true about family.”
Diane Rehm interviewed Amy Zegart, author of Spying Blind: The CIA, the FBI, and the Origins of 9/11 (Princeton Univ. Press, $24.95).
On The Bob Edwards Show, New Yorker legal writer Jeff Toobin continued promoting The Nine: Inside The Secret World of the Supreme Court (Doubleday, $27.95; RH Audio abridged CD, $31.95), which PW called an “absorbing group profile... His savvy account puts the supposedly cloistered Court right in the thick of American life.”
