Prior to founding TAP, Ron Suskind won a Pulitzer Prize and wrote a memoir about our families struggle with Autism that went on to become a documentary film. Life Animated won Best Director at Sundance and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary.
Ron’s other works include Confidence Men (2011), about the fall of the U.S. economy and the presidency of Barack Obama; The Way of the World (2008), about the forces fighting the global “hearts and minds” struggle at a time when awesomely destructive weapons are available to the common man; The One Percent Doctrine (2006), about the U.S. government’s frantic improvisation to fight a new kind of war after 9/11; The Price of Loyalty (2004), about the inner workings of the American government and Presidency of George W. Bush; and A Hope in the Unseen (1998), a nonfiction narrative that helped redefine national debates on race, class and achievement.
Ron often appears on network television and has been a contributor for The New York Times Magazine and Esquire. Ron was the Wall Street Journal’s senior national affairs reporter from 1993 until his departure in 2000, and won the 1995 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing.
