BOOK WORLD - August 22, 2010

Best Sellers

Very little new on the (very) short list of political top-sellers ...

Only political analyst and former congressman Harold Ford Jr.'s new memoir. August seems such an odd time to release what they surely hope will be a popular title. His story is certainly engaging enough ... perhaps the publisher hoped to get a head start on the slew of new titles debuting in September, the start of the heavy Fall publishing months.

1. The Obama Diaries (Threshold Editions, $25)
By Laura Ingraham

2. The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine
(Norton, $27.95). By Michael Lewis

3. War (Twelve, $26.99). By Sebastian Junger

4. More Davids Than Goliaths: A Political Education
(Crown, $25.99). By Harold Ford Jr.

5. Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War
(Metropolitan, $25). By Andrew J. Bacevich

6. Spoken from the Heart
(Scribner, $30). By Laura Bush
