1. Talking to Strangers has a chapter on Jerry Sandusky. One of his key points is that he thinks people have been too hard on Paterno and the Penn State leadership who turned a blind eye to Sandusky’s crimes. He repeated this many times in his interviews and talks about the book to pretty befuddled audiences.
2. The Bomber Mafia is a poorly researched and very roundabout defense of the firebombing of Tokyo during WWII, probably the single deadliest attack in the history of human civilization. He calls the British commanders who firebombed Dresden psychopaths but then turns around and argues that America’s mass bombing of civilians even before the atom bombs was somehow good for the Japanese people.
