I'm a published author and communications professional with more than 20 years experience working in a variety of media. My first book, "***** Joe: Americans Who Go To War In The Name Of Islam," is on sale now.
The New York Times wrote "***** Joe, a sober, factual account of the Americans who have been lured to the cause of religious violence, offers a useful reminder that this phenomenon is nothing new, long predating the Sept. 11 attacks. ... At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective."
Publisher's Weekly called ***** Joe "timely" and "chilling," saying "Berger's exposé painstakingly lays out the scope and character of the American jihadist movement and points the way to a national debate on solutions."
I've written, researched and produced content for major national and international news outlets including NPR, Public Radio International, the National Geographic Channel and the Boston Globe. My work spans a number of topics, including terrorism, science, business and more.
In addition to mainstream journalism, I've also written extensively for B2B and B2C audiences, as a journalist at the Pittsburgh Business Times and the San Francisco Examiner, and writing specialty products for financial insiders at CCBN StreetEvents and reports on UI usability and return on investment for the Nielsen Norman Group.
