This week, two titles that have been receiving press attention will be featured on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Tonight, Douglas Brinkley will talk with Stewart about The Wilderness Warrior, his 800-page examination of Theodore Roosevelt and the conservationist movement. It was reviewed by Janet Maslin in the daily NYT on July 22nd and was the cover review of the NYT BR on Sunday. It’s currently at #33 on Amazon and is showing heavy reserves on modest orders in many libraries (most are showing it still on order). It debuted on the NYT bestsller list at #7 this week.
