“The Amateur” sweeps bestseller lists

Number One, five times over.

Edward Klein’s The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House is Number 1 on the New York Times bestseller list again, for the second week in a row.   In fact, it sits atop three Times bestseller lists: e-book, non-fiction hardcover, and the combined print & e-book totals.

The Amateur is also the top non-fiction title on the USA Today best-seller list, and Number One at Publisher’s Weekly, where it debuts this week.

This has all been accomplished without much attention from the mainstream media.   Klein did get to appear on “Fox & Friends? on Wednesday, where he discussed the portions of his book that cover Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s curiously powerful senior adviser.   (Video courtesy of Mediaite.)
