A Double Shot in The Wall Street Journal

It is a rare event when The Wall Street Journal both reviews a book and
then invites the author to write a "Five Best" column. (The "Five Best"
is a column discussing what the writer believes are the five best books
on a given topic.). WSJ staffers call this a "Double Shot" and reserve
the honor for books considered especially noteworthy. Double shots only
occur two or three times a year. The Wall Street Journal reviewed BRUTE
on November 13, 2010; Coram's "Five Best" column, which featured books
on unsung war heroes, ran on February 19, 2011.
