Publisher Comments:

Since September 11, 2001, Seymour M. Hersh has riveted readers — and outraged the Bush Administration — with his explosive stories in The New Yorker, including his headline-making pieces on the abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib. Now, Hersh brings together what he has learned, along with new reporting, to answer the critical question of the last four years: How did America get from the clear morning when two planes crashed into the World Trade Center to a divisive and dirty war in Iraq?

In Chain of Command, Hersh takes an unflinching look behind the public story of the war on terror and into the lies and obsessions that led America into Iraq. Hersh draws on sources at the highest levels of the American government and intelligence community, in foreign capitals, and on the battlefield for an unparalleled view of a critical chapter in America's recent history. In a new afterword, he critiques the government's failure to adequately investigate prisoner abuse — at Abu Ghraib and elsewhere — and punish those responsible. With an introduction by The New Yorker's editor, David Remnick, Chain of Command is a devastating portrait of an administration blinded by ideology and of a president whose decisions have made the world a more dangerous place for America.

Synopsis:

We all have different shapes, tastes, and lifestyles, so why should one diet work for everyone? Dr. Sanders has analyzed over 700 weight-loss programs and uncovered an essential truth: You can lose weight with many diets, but you can only keep the weight off with a diet that satisfies you. The key to her plan is an interactive questionnaire about your medical history and the foods that tickle your taste buds and just by answering it, will take the guesswork out of selecting the diet that's a perfect fit for you.

Synopsis:

From the brilliant investigative reporter who exposed the Abu Ghraib prison scandal comes a revealing and unflinching look behind the public story of the Bush administration's war on terror, its intelligence failures, and the alleged lies that led America into Iraq.
