September Media Roundup

What a month it has been. The heat of summer may be on its way out, but our authors are on fire. Here’s a look at the September media highlights:


The Sting of the Wild (HC: 9781421419282; $24.95) author Justin Schmidt was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE (including a rather funny mention in Jimmy’s opening monologue) and has been covered in National Geographic, Times Literary Supplement, Daily Mail, HGTV’s DIY Network, M2, Business Insider (which was picked up by IFL Science), BoingBoing, Rated Red, SiriusXM’s Wharton Business School Station, and a lengthy cover story in this month’s Pest Control Technology Magazine. Other recent coverage for the book includes New York Times Magazine, The Guardian, Science FridayBBC Earth, and Atlas Obscura.


Johns Hopkins Magazine ran a feature story around Chickenizing Farms & Food (HC: 9781421420301; $26.95) by Ellen Silbergeld. The Takeaway w/ John Hockenberry and local Baltimore/WYPR show The Environment in Focus also interviewed Silbergeld. Last but not least, the September issue of Science has a very nice review which ends with this quote, “Little doubt exists that meat production is fraught with problems. After reading Silbergeld’s book, my next visit to the farmer’s market will be a more enlightened one.”
