Coming Tuesday, Oct 26th
GLENN: Have you guys read it? Have you read it yet? Stu, have you read it?
STU: I have not read it yet, no.
GLENN: Because usually we I mean, I'm not tell you anything that you don't know. Clearly I'm not sitting at the old Smith Corona, you know, pounding these things out. We write our books the way, you know, a lot of people write their books like Jon Stewart. We work as a team. And I think this is the first book that we've worked on, Stu, that you haven't really
STU: Yeah, no.
GLENN: worked on.
STU: Other than planning meetings and stuff at the beginning, no, I did not. So I'm interested to read it. Comes out October 26. Can't wait to buy it.
GLENN: Exactly right.
STU: I'll be there first in line.
GLENN: You want to leave now to go stand in front of the bookstore here in New York?
STU: You know what? I do, and I will. I'll be more than happy to leave now.
GLENN: No, no, we'll have somebody there. Are you saying that living on the streets of New York for a week is better than working here?
STU: Yes, I am saying that. Specifically.

GLENN: Have you read this one yet, Pat?
GLENN: This is really, probably the meatiest book we've ever done. We were really you know, we're proud of everything we do. Otherwise we wouldn't put it out. But we've been really proud of the meat in especially books like Common Sense and Arguing With Idiots. Arguing With Idiots and An Inconvenient Book, those things are really, they're still, they're reference guides.
STU: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: We use them all the time. Something will happen in the news and we're like, wait a minute, wasn't that in Inconvenient Book? We'll look it up and all the stats are there. But this one, Kevin, do you have any kind of example of the difference between stats in this or the difference in meat in this compared to the other books that we've done? Kevin Balfe, by the way, runs the book division of the company.
KEVIN: I mean, this one I would say the difference in putting this one together was how much you pushed us towards kind of getting this council together of experts. I mean, the other ones were really research intensive, but this one was like, okay, if we were doing the history part, it was, you know, sit down with five history professors who we trusted and not only ask for all their information but then where they got their information. And then go to those reference books. And really just kind of follow this trail. So to me between the three parts, we've got past, present and future. I think we spent more time in the development and research page of this book than any of the other books probably combined.
GLENN: Probably. This has taken us over a year to write, hasn't it?
KEVIN: Oh, between all the meetings and remember those dinners we were having in New York at least a year ago.
GLENN: Yeah, it comes out next week. And I know people say, oh, my gosh, he just cranks books out. We don't crank them we do not crank them out. We've been working on this one for over a year.
PAT: This is only the 19th book this year. It's the 19th book to come out this year. We do not crank these out.
GLENN: Well, no, we don't crank them out.
PAT: We don't.
GLENN: We make a lot of them.
PAT: I mean, Nineteen books in a year.
GLENN: We do make a lot of them, but we don't crank them out.
PAT: That's less that's less than two per month.
PAT: So when it's under two a month
GLENN: Is this the last one that's going to be like this for a while, isn't it? Kevin? Because we're working believe it or not, we're working on five different books right now. In fact, during the break I was just giving final edits for another book that is coming out next year, early next year that is I'll just give you the tell you what we're working on. Early next year, after Broke, early next year there is more of a self help book. What is the name of this one? Have we decided on the name yet?
KEVIN: We have. It's called The Seven.
GLENN: The Seven. And it is the seven things that you have to do, seven things that will change your life. And I'm co writing that one with Dr. Keith Ablow. It's going to be a great book. Then after that our first children's history book. And this one's written by several historians with us, but it's totally different than anything else you've ever seen. This one is not about American heroes. This is which American hero are you? The story behind the hero stories. And then your children figure out which one am I like? It's amazing. That's coming out.
