Hudson Street Press EIC Scores “America’s Best Known Doctor”

weil.jpgNewly-hired Hudson Street Press editor Caroline Sutton landed a plum first deal earlier this week, buying the next book by Andrew Weil M.D., the author of five consecutive #1 NY Times bestsellers. The NY Times once wrote that Weil “has arguably become America’s best-known doctor.”

Set for a September 2009 release, “Why Our Health Matters: A Vision of Medicine That Can Transform Our Future,” Weil worries that health care problems could unravel the economy. Richard Pine from Inkwell Literary Management sealed the deal.

Here’s more from EIC Sutton’s statement: “Health and medicine have become a major issue in our society. Dr. Weil shows us exactly how we let this crisis happen and what we can do to resolve it. He writes with such passion that he will inspire readers to act.” (Photo via DrWeil.com)
