Tour of Duty: John Kerry and the Vietnam War

Douglas Brinkley
William Morrow
hardcover
$25.95

The distinction is stark. When George W. Bush graduated from Yale, his daddy got him out of fighting in Vietnam by getting him a coveted spot in the Texas Air National Guard. When John Kerry graduated from Yale, he joined the Navy and became a war hero. In Tour of Duty, Brinkley tells the senator's bloody battle stories and relates Kerry's later efforts in the anti-war movement.

The Design Revolution: Answering the Toughest Questions About Intelligent Design

William A. Dembski
Intervarsity Press
paper
$15

Dembski offers up a readable defense of intelligent design, the primary intellectual argument against Darwin's theory of evolution. Even if you don't buy this religion-based competing theory, The Design Revolution should still fascinate anyone interested in the origins of life.

Paranoia

Joseph Finder
St. Martin's Press
hardcover
$24.95

Adam Cassidy, a low-level employee at a company called Wyatt Telecom, gets blackmailed into spying on a competitor and soon finds he's in way over his head. Advance word is that Finder's latest corporate espionage thriller will grab readers by the throat and throttle them with the sheer joy of a story well told.

Paul Stoller
Beacon Press
hardcover
$23

After being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, Stoller resorts to the teachings of an African sorcerer to cope with his cancer. Sounds kooky, but even skeptics might be swayed by Stoller's description of sorcery's emphasis on humility and acceptance to cure illness.
