Pray for Me: I'm Going on The Daily Show Tonight

The first time I went on The Daily Show, nearly five years ago, I dreaded it for weeks in advance. I had a terrible fear of going on TV and had avoided it scrupulously, even in publicizing our first book. When Jon Stewart came knocking, however, it was impossible to come up with a credible reason to give the publisher as to why I couldn’t do it. I had no choice.
I survived.
Then we made the mistake of writing a second book.
Now I have to go do The Daily Show again, and tonight is the night.
I don’t fear going on TV the way I used to, although I’m still pretty bad at it.
I had even convinced myself that it couldn’t go that badly, could it? Then I made the mistake of watching this Jon Stewart interview with Jim Cramer.
