BOOK WORLD - October 3, 2010
Political book sales saw nothing this past week as momentous as the departure of Rahm Emanuel from the West Wing staff, but there were some interesting additions ...
Oh, first, the deletions --- Armey & Kibbe's "Tea Party Manifesto" vanishes from the bestseller lists this week, after being #1 in both the political and general rankings last week ...
New entries on the list this week include President Jimmy Carter's annotated diaries from his four years in the White House (expected), former Clinton staffer Robert Reich's look at the "new normal" in our post-recession economy (somewhat expected ... he's making the interview rounds a lot lately) and Salon senior writer Rebecca Traister's analysis of the groundbreaking 2008 presidential election with an emphasis on the shift for women (a pleasant surprise).
