BOOK WORLD – August 22, 2010
Very little new on the (very) short list of political top-sellers …
Only political analyst and former congressman Harold Ford Jr.'s new memoir. August seems such an odd time to release what they surely hope will be a popular title. His story is certainly engaging enough … perhaps the publisher hoped to get a head start on the slew of new titles debuting in September, the start of the heavy Fall publishing months.
