The Whole Foods Diet by John Mackey, Matthew Lederman, MD, and Alona Pulde, MD

Working with John Mackey, Matt Lederman, and Alona Pulde on The Whole Foods Diet was both an education and a pleasure. Publishers Weekly described it as “inspiring”: [The Whole Foods Diet] reaches beyond the typical diet plan tenets of eating right to feel better and lose weight; this plan is expressly intended to help save and extend lives. —Publishers Weekly (read the full review here.) “An engaging, comprehensive guide to healthy eating” —Dr. Dean Ornish “I would not be surprised if The Whole Foods Diet becomes the definitive work on how to eat for a long, healthy, disease-free life. It’s that clear. And it’s that good.”    —John Robbins, bestselling author of Diet For A New...

Holacracy by Brian Robertson

Holacracy by Brian Robertson

Coming June 2015, this book has been many years in the making and I’m thrilled that it is being published by leading business publisher Henry Holt & Co., who won a bidding war for this exciting title. Working to help Brian translate his unique and innovative “business operating system” onto the page was a great creative challenge for me and I’m very proud of the result.

My Isl@m by Amir Ahmad Nasr

My Isl@m by Amir Ahmad Nasr

Congratulations to client Amir Ahmad Nasr on the publication of his acclaimed memoir My Isl@m from St. Martins Press. My Isl@m tells the story of Amir’s journey from the fundamentalism of his childhood to the freedom of the blogosphere. When I first heard his story, I was captivated by how far Amir had traveled in his personal and philosophical journey by such a young age, and how culturally relevant his insights are to our troubled world. I felt fortunate to have the opportunity to work with him on the proposal (which eventually sold to St. Martin’s Press) and advise him during the writing process. It’s been deeply gratifying to see how well the book has been received. Here are a few excerpts from early reviews:  “Nasr seamlessly blends memoir with political thought and activism… Personal history—particularly his expatriate childhood—is the book’s strongest aspect, delivered in Nasr’s casual, conversational tone. Nasr’s insight into the world of young Arab bloggers, including many of the activists behind the Arab Spring, makes this a valuable and enjoyable read.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review) “My Isl@m” displays the charm of a good blog—irreverent, nonchalant, open to fresh ideas, generous to other writers, ostentatiously unpretentious and secretly grandiose. – The Wall Street Journal   Here’s a fun video of Amir talking about the book: You can find out more about the book, watch the trailer, and preorder your copy on the My Isl@m...
