Meet the Author - Dan Burstein, Secrets of Inferno

Sunday, January 12, 2014, 04:00pm - 06:00pm

Secrets of Inferno: In the Footsteps of Dante and Dan Brown is a reader's guide to the Secrets of Inferno Book Cover edited for webjourney Dan Brown took us all on in Inferno. The book gives readers the “back story” on particular plot points, Dante references, symbols, historical events, philosophy, art, music, and architectural works that Brown wrapped into his story. It is also an intellectually enriching, intriguing, fresh and fun look at Dante, the Divine Comedy, the world of ideas circulating in Florence on the cusp of the Renaissance, and the relevance of those ideas to our lives and our world today. 

Dan Burstein and Arne de Keijzer are the world's leading experts on Dan Brown's fiction. Beginning with their path-breaking Secrets of the Code, which spent six months on the New York Times bestseller list in 2004, and continuing through four other guidebooks to Dan Brown's fiction (as well as three film documentaries and two special editions of US News), Burstein and de Keijzer have sold more than three million copies of Dan Brown-related commentaries in more than thirty languages. In the wake of each Dan Brown title over the last decade, the meDan Burstein edited for webdia (from the History Channel to CNN to MSNBC to USA Today to the Washington Post) have turned to Burstein and de Keijzer for interpretations of Dan Brown's books, decoding of the hidden symbols and ciphers, explanations of the controversies, and thoughtful separation of fact from fiction in these supremely popular stories that somehow always manage to fascinate our culture well beyond the bounds of their pop fiction genre.

The ultimate guide for any Dan Brown fan, Secrets of Inferno is entertaining, thought provoking, and will make the experience of reading Inferno richer than you ever imagined.

Burstein is cofounder and managing partner of Millennium Technology Value Partners, a New York City-based venture capital firm that has invested in some of the leading technology companies of our time.
