Publicity: Audacity – Jonathan Chait

This will be on most bookstore front tables this week and offers an attractive alternative for customers looking for a way to avoid next weekend’s inauguration coverage.

The media line-up is first-rate, starting with The Daily Show and NPR’s On Point, followed by George Stephanopoulos, Chris Hayes, Brian Lehrer, Chris Matthews and Bill Mahar.

New York magazine is currently running an article adapted from the book. Print media coverage includes the Washington Post, Weekly Standard, USA Today, NYTBR, Atlantic, New Republic and LA Times Book Review.

Perhaps the most entertaining piece of publicity is an article in the NYT Style Section on the marketing boost that Trump’s invective gives authors: “Overrated? Loser? Not if It’s Trump Who Calls You Out.” Here’s a comment on Chait from our Reviewer in Chief:


Audacity: How Barack Obama Defied His Critics and Created a Legacy That Will Prevail (9780062426970) by Jonathan Chait. $27.99 hardcover. 1/17/17 on sale
