National Book Festival

Charles Wheelan is a journalist, book author and onetime candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives. He is also a regular contributor to “The Motley Fool” radio program on NPR. Wheelan’s first book, “Naked Economics,” introduced lay readers to the intricacies of that social science. And what his first book did for economics, “Naked Statistics,” his second book, did for that field of study. Wheelan has now written “The Centrist Manifesto” (Norton), which offers detailed guidance to forming a new party that will champion America’s political center.
