Ipswich, MA (PRWEB) April 25, 2007
Many aspiring authors wait a lifetime without seeing a single book published. But over the next few weeks, three times will be the charm for author Todd Buchholz, who will see three of his works hit bookstores nationwide: The Castro Gene (Oceanview Publishing; May 15, 2007), his fiction debut; New Ideas from Dead CEOs (HarperCollins; May 1, 2007); and a completely revised and updated edition of his best-selling book, New Ideas from Dead Economists (Plume; April 6, 2007).
With a keen eye and sparkling wit, Buchholz has predicted and analyzed some of the biggest issues facing America over the past two decades. His editorials in the Wall Street Journal correctly forecast the 2001 economic slowdown in the U.S., and the New York Times has turned to him to decipher terrorist threats and the job market. BusinessWeek raved about his book Market Shock (HarperCollins, 2000), which warned of the quicksand facing the stock market. Now, readers can enjoy his insights into the philosophies and strategies of the world's greatest CEO's (and economists!). They'll also delight in the suspense, intrigue, and pulse-pounding fun of Buchholz's new political thriller involving one of the world's most enigmatic leaders, Fidel Castro.
The Castro Gene sweeps readers into the secretive and dangerous world of hedge funds, along with the explosive politics of Havana and Washington, D.C. Intricately plotted with unexpected twists and breathtaking turns that reveal hidden secrets of Vegas's Rat Pack days and the most astonishing theory of the Kennedy assassination to burst forth in 40 years, The Castro Gene is an unforgettable knockout.
New Ideas from Dead CEOs both illuminates and delights with its insightful, colorful portrayals of great business leaders, including Sam Walton (Wal-Mart), Akio Morita (Sony), Ray Kroc (McDonald's), Estee Lauder, Walt Disney and others. Businesspeople and general readers alike will flock to this latest work from one of the country's foremost business thinkers and writers.
New Ideas from Dead Economists surveys and analyzes economic thought from Adam Smith, to Karl Marx, to Maynard Keynes, and notable economists in between (and since). In the able hands of Buchholz, the challenging topic of economics becomes at once fascinating, comprehensible, and relevant.
Todd Buchholz is a former White House director of economic policy, award-winning teacher at Harvard, and managing director of the $15 billion Tiger hedge fund. He is a contributing editor at Worth magazine, and has written for The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Reader's Digest. He is the author of New Ideas From Dead Economists, From Here to Economy, Market Shock, and Bringing the Jobs Home and is a frequent in-demand speaker and CNBC guest host. He also holds several engineering and design patents and is a co-producer of the Broadway smash Jersey Boys. His newest books, New Ideas From Dead CEOs, and a novel, The Castro Gene, will be released in May 2007.
