The Globe and Mail shares a detailed and positive review of Saadia Zahidi’s FIFTY MILLION RISING on Feb 1: “And this is the gist of the captivating book Fifty Million Rising […] Zahidi is able to seamlessly weave number crunching with personal interviews of Muslim women who are leading the transformation of their societies. In doing so, she is able to bring forth the beauty of individual trees, while sketching the contours of the emerging forest.” [ATTACHED] (Nation Books / HC: 9781568585901, $36.50 / E: 9781568585918, $22.99 / Publicist: DN)

Here’s your chance to meet John and Bobby Kennedy, Nixon, Eisenhower, Kefauver, LBJ, and Joe McCarthy. Jake Tapper puts you right back in the 50s. At the same time, Tapper has written a superior thriller I couldn’t stop reading. To be completely honest, though, Jake Tapper is an irritating bastard. Journalists like him are supposed to be writing dusty non-fiction tomes that help us get to sleep, not thrillers that keep us up half the night. THE HELLFIRE CLUB is a hell of a good read. Now Tapper should return to writing non-fiction.
