Overview

"Barry Eisler is this generation's tech-savvy new media incarnation of Graham Greene."
-Jeremy Scahill, The Nation

By internationally bestselling thriller author and syndicated political blogger Barry Eisler, THE ASS IS A POOR RECEPTACLE FOR THE HEAD is a must-read for anyone interested in verbally crushing the competition in politics, business, and even romance.

Regardless of what you think of their policies, the sad truth is that Democrats suck at selling their ideas to the public.

In this hilarious and hard-hitting essay, Eisler draws on his expertise in narrative, his CIA training in persuasion, and his background in technology marketing to offer Democrats some sound advice on how to improve their communications strategy. Borrowing principles from judo and boxing, Eisler encourages Democrats (and anyone trying to sell an idea) to hammer their opponents into a rhetorical corner…and knock them the hell out!

Meet the Author

After graduating from Cornell Law School, Barry Eisler spent three years in a covert position in the CIA — not a bad start for a future thriller writer. After leaving the Agency, Eisler put his law degree to use, dividing his time between Washington, D.C., Silicon Valley, and Tokyo, first as a lawyer, then as a technology startup executive. Along the way, he earned his black belt from the Kodokan International Judo Center and started writing a novel, Rain Fall, that was published in 2002 to critical acclaim in over 20 countries and enabled him to write full time. Since then, Eisler has written a total of eight books, one screenplay, and a lot of blog posts. It was his discovery of the blogosphere, in fact, that led to Eisler's deepening politicization, and his latest novel, Inside Out, a thriller built on Guantanamo, Blackwater, and the missing CIA interrogation videos, is his most political yet, praised by former soldiers and spooks like Matthew Alexander and Robert Baer; journalists like Daphne Eviatar and Dahlia Lithwick; filmmakers like Charles Ferguson and Alex Gibney; and bloggers like Glenn Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill.
