Sneak Peek: 'The Greatest Story Ever Sold'

Here's a sneak peek at the cover of the publisher's advance excerpt sampler of "The Greatest Story Ever Sold: The Decline and Fall of Truth From 9/11 to Katrina" by New York Times maestro Frank Rich, who for my money is one of the best writers (as in the craft of stringing thoughts together in an artful and compelling way) in the trade these days.

The title is almost as long as the sampler, but I was pleased to find that the book is not merely a regurgitation of Rich's columns, which is often the M.O. for book writing op-ed columnists

Here are the chapter headings, although possibly not in their final sequence:
Mission Accomplished
Heckuva Job, Brownie
Shock and Awe
Slam Dunk
Dead or Alive
Bring 'Em On!
Last Throes
The Smoking Gun Is a Mushroom Cloud
Uranium From Africa
As the Iraqis Stand Up, We'll Stand Down

"The Greatest Story" is due out in the fall.
