The State of Affairs by Esther Perel (HarperCollins, 2017)

“Sure to spark intelligent conversations that will have readers everywhere examining their belief systems. This is a thought-provoking take on relationships and essential reading for couples dealing with infidelity.” —Publishers Weekly

Coming in 2018: The Whole Foods Cookbook

(Grand Central Life & Style)

The Whole Foods Diet: The Lifesaving Plan for Health and Longevity by John Mackey, Matthew Lederman, MD, and Alona Pulde, MD. (Grand Central Life & Style, 2017)

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….its tone is inspiring.” —Publishers Weekly

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.

My Isl@m: How Fundamentalism Stole My Mind and Doubt Freed My Soul

by Amir Ahmad Nasr (St. Martins Press, 2013)

“Structured wittily around a love affair with Islam, Nasr’s account is straightforward, fluent and full of lively allusions for further readings. A candid, cosmopolitan look at the experience of Islam in the digital age.”

– Kirkus Reviews

“Nasr seamlessly blends memoir with political thought and activism. The book smoothly follows his journey out of a simplistic understanding of Islam, through rationalism and semi-atheism, towards a conversion to Sufism. Personal history . . . is the book’s strongest aspect, delivered in Nasr’s casual, conversational tone. . . A valuable and enjoyable read.”
