In the above video, Nagin talks to Jon Stewart about how he chose to self publish the book rather than go through a publishing house, after shopping it with a literary agent. He said: “Once you turn over your manuscript to a publisher, you never know what is going to happen.”

Here’s the book:

  • If even the mayor of New Orleans during Katrina can’t make a “book deal” with a traditional publisher, isn’t that telling us everything we need to know?
