Wise words from Seven Stories publisher Dan Simon:
The most important person I know is Ralph Nader because he always makes a lot of sense. Ralph is one of the very few living Americans who has saved countless lives, done so again and again. Seatbelts. The whole idea of consumer protection. Ralph reminds us that we can make real change, and shows us how. Today we release his new book, Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns. In the tradition of I.F. Stone, Ralph Nader has taken up and transformed what used to be called the newspaper column (but today since most newspaper columns aren’t read in newspapers we had to drop the n-word) into a weekly literary and political call to action. The book is big and bold, full of great ideas and, like its author, funny, honest, and brash all at once.
