He was on the Daily Show promoting it recently.
I don't think this was a case of no-one-would-buy-it. Nagin indicated he wanted to be able to speak freely and he thought that wouldn't work as well through a more traditional agent/publisher route. I have not bought it and don't anticipate doing so, altho that's as much because it is well outside any of my current areas of interest as for any other reason. It is interesting, however, that he made that choice; we'll have to see if it is an isolated instance or the beginning of a trend. I was pleased that a Nagin memoir -- which _would_ have landed on the Daily Show if published by one of the Big 6 -- got time on the Daily Show even though it was selfpubbed.
