Just saw on Amazon that former Vice President Al Gore has another book coming out soon. The new book, titled The Assault on Reason — due out May 22 — is just in time to balance John Kerry’s new book, This Moment on Earth and Barack Obama’s current bestseller, The Audacity of Hope.
According to its description, Al’s book will go far beyond the theme of global warming and provide —
A visionary analysis of how the politics of fear, secrecy, cronyism, and blind faith has combined with the degration [sic] of the public sphere to create an environment dangerously hostile to reason.
Sounds like it will be harder to do a PowerPoint presentation for this one and win an Academy Award. Maybe he’s aiming his sights instead at the National Book Awards, the Pulitzer Prize . . . or the Presidency?
