BOOK WORLD - January 16, 2011

By Christopher Schoppa
Best Sellers

Another short list this time around ...

What's interesting is who fell off --- Sarah Palin, Bill O'Reilly, Bob Woodward ... some rather big books. But then again, what many would consider some rather partisan titles, they too have a shelf life.

But joining the list is a reissue of President Ronald Reagan's 1991 memoir. This, and scores of other Reagan titles (at least three new photo-essay books, a new analysis of the assassination attempt, a memoir of the president by Ron Reagan Jr.) will hit stores over the next six months to mark the centennial of Reagan's birth.

1. Decision Points (Crown, $35)
By George W. Bush

2. All the Devils Are Here: The Hidden History of the Financial Crisis
(Portfolio, $32.95). By Bethany Mclean & Joe Nocera

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

4. An American Life: The Autobiography
(Simon & Schuster, $32). By Ronald Reagan

5. Scorpions: The Battles and Triumphs of FDR's Great Supreme Court Justices
(Twelve, $30). By Noah Feldman

6. Broke: The Plan to Restore Our Trust, Truth and Treasure

(Threshold Editions, $29.99). By Glenn Beck

Of course he did. A demented old man repeating platitudes. Sounds like a true Republican.
