The Tyranny of Nice:
How Canada crushes freedom in the name of human rights — and why it matters to Americans
Co-authored with journalist Pete Vere, and with an introduction by Mark Steyn, The Tyranny of Nice (2008) was the first book to document the abuses of Canada’s Human Rights Commissions.
Along with the famous censorship cases of Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant, the book chronicles the stories of lesser known victims of these state-sponsored, politically correct Thought Police.
The Tyranny of Nice was a Conservative Book Club selection, and is now in its third printing.
The authors were interviewed by Pajamas Media Radio upon the book’s release. Other media:

Kathy Shaidle Unplugged
“By the way, Kathy Shaidle has a new e-book out. I’m so square I’m not sure I quite know what that is, but I’ve read it, and it reads like an old-fashioned non-e-book, only better.
“You should get it.
“She has fans around the world: in the course of the last year, I’ve sat in a restaurant on the beach at Malibu and at the Savoy Grill in London and listened to various long-distance admirers regale me with favourite examples of her prose…”
— from Mark Steyn’s review of Acoustic Ladyland (2007)

God Rides a Yamaha:
Musings on Pain, Poetry and Pop Culture
Published in 1998, God Rides a Yamaha: Musings on Pain, Poetry and Pop Culture collects the best of Kathy Shaidle’s award-winning essays for Catholic New Times and other publications.
“Readers who know Shaidle solely through her combative and often vituperative weblogs may be surprised at the poignancy and compassion of her poetry. (…)
“She’s Hopkins with fistfights, Paglia without the self-absorption of ersatz paganism, Patti Smith at Midnight Mass. Her poetry is broken the way hearts are broken.”
— from Eve Tushnet’s review of Lobotomy Magnificat
Kathy Shaidle’s first book was shortlisted for the 1998 Governer General’s Award for Poetry.
Lobotomy Magnificat finally went out of print in 2008, but copies are still occasionally available from rare book dealers.
