HarperCollins to Publish New Ron Suskind Book

Pulitzer prize-winning writer Ron Suskind will be publishing his latest financial tome Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President with HarperCollins.

The book is slated for release on September 20th. According to the press release, Suskind (pictured, via) conducted hundreds of hours of interviews with politicians, financial titans, reformers, and lobbyists.

Executive editor Tim Duggan had this statement: “This is a book that shows how the financial collapse did virtually nothing to change the culture of Wall Street. What it did manage to do, though, was to test the mettle of Barack Obama in a way that he’s never been tested before, and the picture that emerges from Suskind’s reporting is eye-opening, to say the least.”
