Given all the books on Princess Di in the pipeline for next season, it seems fitting that Salon founder DAVID TALBOT has gone against the grain to focus on America’s version of a royal family. Brothers: A Hidden History of the Kennedy Years is an in-depth look at John and Robert that sheds fresh insight on their administration and their ambitions.
Check this slightly hysterical rant of a Salon feature: "Oprah's Ugly Secret." Peter Birkenhead's screed is a meaty, 3-page attack of Oprah, damning her support of the best-selling self-help book The Secret. The book is currently No. 1 on best-seller lists and has shot ahead of the final Harry Potter tome in sales.
