i-was-wrong.jpgNick Smith, author of I Was Wrong has a busy few days ahead of him:

Sunday, he’ll be on CBC News Sunday‘s segment on “The Art of the Apology.”

Tuesday he will be in DC for The Diane Rehm Show.

Smith is both a philosopher interested in apologies and a former trial lawyer; suffice it to say he’ll have a lot to talk about in current politics, including the Eliot Spitzer affair. Tune in!

Globalization101.org hosted a Q&A with Susan Aaronson, author of Trade Imbalance. Aaronson discusses the always murky territory of trade and human rights.

Appellation Beer – the site and blog of author and beer lover Stan Hieronymus is reading Grape vs. Grain. He has his own thoughts about the beer/wine debate right up front today, and throughout the blog.

The excellent Good Grape is anticipating Bamforth’s book as well.
