While the upcoming August 10 edition of the New York Times Combined Print & E-Book Nonfiction Best Sellers list shows that Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to capture the public's imagination more than any other presidential contender, her memoir continues to be bested by books anathema to hers.
Ms. Clintons memoir, "Hard Choices," comes in at no. 8 on the list, but three books by conservative authors are positioned above hers, with another book perceived as critical of the Clintons debuting just a handful of spots below.
Dinesh D’Souza’s impassioned defense of America, aptly titled "America" (review, excerpt, interview, quote list), stands at No. 2 on the best sellers list. Sales have appeared to correlate with the release of the D’Souza-directed documentary of the same name, which was released on July 4.
In the No. 6 slot is Ed Klein’s "Blood Feud" (quote list), which details the antipathy and acrimony between the Clinton and Obama families.
Presidential hopeful Ben Carson’s "One Nation" (review, excerpt, quote list), a guide to solving the problems plaguing America's political discourse, is slotted at No. 7 after ten weeks on the chart.
Finally, clocking in at No. 13 in its first week on the charts is "Clinton, Inc." (key stories from the book here, here, here), an inside look at the Clintons’ rise to power written by Daniel Halper.
Representatives for the Clinton camp have been heavily critical of the recent slew of books coming out on the family, attacking authors Ed Klein, Daniel Halper and Ronald Kessler of the soon-to-be-released "The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents" as being "[a] Hat Trick of despicable actors concocting trashy nonsense for a quick buck."
