BOOK WORLD - September 26, 2010

Best Sellers

Labor Day is behind us, and the political season is in full swing (including plenty of mudslinging) as the countdown to the midterm elections grinds on relentlessly ...

Armey & Kibbe's look at the meaning of the "tea party" reclaims the top spot, followed by more harsh words from Bill O'Reilly.

The gracious Laura Bush is back on the list with her memoir published earlier this year ... and speaking of gracious, the official guide to U.S. diplomatic protocol hits the list for the first time, though it originally published back in June. Too bad no such book exists to govern politicians' manners ...

And Supreme Court judge Stephen Breyer reflects on the underpinnings of the American democracy.

Since when is Stephen Breyer a former Supreme Court Justice. He is still a sitting Justice.
