Chris Wallace, Avid Reader Press / Simon & Schuster, Illustrated edition (June 9, 2020)
A compelling and highly readable account of one of the most fateful decisions in American history. Like John Hersey in his book Hiroshima, Wallace and Weiss humanize events too often reduced to technical or diplomatic arcana by telling their story through the lives of individuals. . . . The book moves along at a rapid clip, with colorful anecdotes enlivening the narrative

James Nestor, Random House, Riverhead Books (May 26, 2020)
With his entertaining, eerily well-timed new book, James Nestor explains the science behind proper breathing and how we can transform our lungs and our lives. The book is brisk and detailed; a well-written read that is always entertaining, as he melds the personal, the historical, and the scientific.
