Daniel Paisner is an American journalist and author. He is best known for his work as a ghostwriter and collaborator. He has published more than sixty books, including fourteen New York Times best-sellers.[1][2] He is also the author of three novels, and several works of non-fiction. His novel A Single Happened Thing was published by Relegation Books in March 2016.[3] His titles include The Girl in the Green Sweater: A Life in Holocaust's Shadow (2008), The Power of Broke (2016), and Last Man Down (2002).[4]

Early life[edit]

Paisner graduated from Tufts University with a B.A. in English in 1982,[5] before receiving an M.A. in Journalism from Boston University.[6][when?]

Career[edit]

In 2006, Paisner collaborated with Holly Robinson Peete on the book Get Your Own Damn Beer, I'm Watching the Game!: A Woman's Guide to Loving Pro Football, which won that year's Quill Award in the Sports category.[7]

In 2011, Paisner collaborated with baseball umpire Jim Joyce and pitcher Armando Galarraga on a book about Galarraga's near perfect game. On June 2, 2010, Joyce called a play incorrectly, preventing Galarraga from pitching a perfect game. Following the release of the book, Nobody's Perfect: Two Men, One Call, and a Game for Baseball History, MLB did not allow Joyce to work any games in which Galarraga would be playing, to avoid any appearance of impropriety due to their business relationship.[8]

In 2016, with Daymond John, the founder and CEO of FUBU, Paisner released The Power of Broke, a motivational business book that features stories from 15 entrepreneurs, including Steve Aoki, Rob Dyrdek, Kevin Plank, and Loren Ridinger.[9] It appeared on the Wall Street Journal[10] and New York Times[11] bestseller lists, and received an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Instructional Literary Work.[12]
