Tom Zoellner, a sometimes-Tucsonan who has written the engaging Uranium: War, Energy and the Rock that Shaped the World, will be Jon Stewart's guest on The Daily Show tonight. We at The Range are, of course, seething with jealousy.

Hampton Sides, bestselling author of Ghost Soldiers, and winner of the PEN award for nonfiction, has high praise for Uranium:


Who knew that a rock could be so endlessly fascinating? In this engaging geo-thriller, Tom Zoellner leads us through uranium's dark and colorful past and points us to its possibly terrifying future. Put on your haz-mat suit and prepare yourself for a wild and ultimately sobering ride.

Here's a Q&A with Zoellner that ran in TW a few weeks back.
