The Gods of Greenwich

Norb Vonnegut, the best-selling author of  Top Producer, returns to the high stakes world of Wall Street in The Gods of Greenwich. Hired to provide a full book publicity tour for The Gods of Greenwich, Newman guided Vonnegut through a book publicity campaign from galley stage to finished books.  With an impressive financial background, author Norb Vonnegut used his experience on Wall Street to offer a (fictional) peek into the lives of America’s most powerful people.  Newman’s book publicity campaign helped orchestrate a successful book launch party in NYC, two New York Times articles, a series of book signings, amongst other fantastic interviews.

Newman Provides Book Publicity Services for Michael Lewis, Author Of The Blind Side

The Big Short: Inside The Doomsday Machine

Author: Michael Lewis

Book Publicity: The Big Short

The Big Short - Inside the Doomsday Machine

Michael Lewis, the bestselling chronicler of Wall Street’s excesses, returns to the world’s turbulent financial markets with his newest book. Lewis comes  to Newman Communications for a book publicity tour that had him winning over radio audiences nationwide. Lewis was interviewed on three separate occasions on the Westwood One Radio Network and twice for the  Fox Radio Network. Newman’s publicity campaign also included  WOR – AM in NY, WCBS /NY and the Wall Street Journal Radio Network. Stations throughout the country also had a chance to talk to the author whose last book was made into the movie  The Blind Side and which the Academy Awards gave top honors this year to actress Sandra Bullock.

About the Book:

The Big Short is  an illuminating and often frightening tale of the current global financial catastrophe from an unusual perspective: that of the winners. It  follows the very small but very intelligent set of contrarian misfits brave enough to stand apart from the madding crowd, those skeptical enough to not be fooled by soaring house prices, and smart enough to recognize how criminal mismanagement, predatory lending and the chronic mispricing of complex financial derivatives would bring the whole edifice crumbling down, sooner rather than later. And because they were also willing to bet money on the boom going bust, these misfits made enormous profits even as the world’s financial markets shattered.

THE BIG SHORT delivers a dark portrait of modern American finance and its impact on the world, as well as a character-rich tale of hubris, nemesis and Wall Street greed.

About the Author

Michael Lewis is the author of Liar’s Poker, The New New Thing, Moneyball, The Blind Side, and Home Game, among other works. He lives in Berkeley, California.

The Snowball, Warren Buffett and the Business of Life

The Snowball - Warren Buffet

The Snowball - Warren Buffet

In this startlingly frank account of Buffett’s life, Author, Alice Schroeder, a former managing director at Morgan Stanley—and hand picked by Buffett to be his biographer—strips away the mystery that has long cloaked the word’s richest man to reveal a life and fortune erected around lucid and inspired business vision and unimaginable personal complexity. In a book that is dominated by unstinting descriptions of Buffett’s appetites—for profit, women (particularly nurturing maternal types), food (Buffett maintained his and his family’s weight by “dangling money”)—it is refreshing that Schroeder keeps her tone free of judgment or awe; Buffett’s plain-speaking suffuses the book and renders his public and private successes and failures wonderfully human and universal. Schroeder’s sections detailing the genesis of Buffett’s investment strategy, his early mentoring by Benjamin Graham (who imparted the memorable “cigar butt” scheme: purchasing discarded stocks and taking a final puff). Inspiring managerial advice abounds and competes with gossipy tidbits (the married Buffett’s very public relationship with Washington Post editor Katherine Graham) in this rich, surprisingly affecting biography
