You don't need to check the charts to see who's leading the nonfiction hardcover bestseller list. Unless one has been doing a Rip Van Winkle, it's hard not to take in the fact that every major broadcast and print news organization, here and abroad, has been running lead stories on Richard A. Clarke's Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror, published by Free Press in a one-day laydown March 22. "Inside" is a key word in the book's immediate success—Clarke, former counterterrorism czar for both Clinton and Bush, has advised seven U.S. presidents on terrorism. Today's lead Book News story notes that the demand for the book following Clarke's appearance on 60 Minutes and his March 23 testimony before the 9-11 commission blew the book out of the gates—it sold about 170,000 in less than a week. First printing was 300,000 and within 10 days of laydown, the publisher went back to press eight times, bringing the in-print figure to 650,000. The book is leading the charts at chains and independents, outselling bestseller #2 by about four to one. Also, in the same 10-day period, Free Press sold foreign rights to Germany, France, Italy, Spain, China, the Netherlands and Korea. With reviews and many more media appearances still to come, this title will continue to sell in huge numbers—as will other political books hitting the stores before the country goes to the polls in November.
