BOOK WORLD {September 12, 2010}

Best Sellers

Just a handful of new political books publishing these early weeks of September, and so few new ones to join the list ...

Tony Blair's new memoir is a natural for the top poli-sci rankings, as is Meghan McCain's look back at her father's presidential campaign and take on the future GOP. And she doesn't mince words while doing it. It's a little surprising the book never cracked the general nonfiction bestseller list, as D.C. is usually an area ready and eager for political gossip and such.

Comments

I found Tony Blair's book insightful and enlightening. Considering neither he nor George W. Bush say they regret the decisions made at the time, one wonders what both of these men know that was never shared with the general public.

If there were not weapons of mass destruction, how is it Iran has so aggressively insisted on nuclear capability and arming itself up to this very day.

I find it interesting that recently inspectors were not allowed to inspect certain sections of Iran's nuclear facilities supplied by the Soviets.
