Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of August 16, 2021:
1. “Woke, Inc.: Inside Corporate America's Social Justice Scam’’ by Vivek Ramaswamy (Center Street) The Harvard-educated founder of two successful biotech companies makes the case that politics has no place in business, and by mixing morality with consumerism, America’s elites prey on the insecure public.
The publisher says the “Woke, Inc.’’ begins as a critique of stakeholder capitalism and ends with an exploration of what it means to be an American in 2021 — a journey that begins with cynicism and ends with hope. (Nonfiction)
2. “The Snapping of the Amercian Mind,’’ by David Kupelian (Republic Book Publishers) Kupelian, editor of Whistleblower Magazine, argues the progressive Left dominates America's key institutions from the news and entertainment media to education and government.
He says that domination doing more than just enlarging government, redistributing wealth, and de-Christianizing the culture — it’s, intentionally or not, promoting dependency, debauchery, family breakdown, crime and addiction. (Nonfiction)
3. “Coup in Dallas: The Decisive Investigation into Who Killed JFK” by H.P. Albarelli (Skyhorse) Albarelli, an investigative journalist, lays out a new theory on who killed President John F. Kennedy and how the assassination plot was carried out.
He looks at the historical roots of state-sponsored assassination and finds parallels to the fatal shooting Nov. 22, 1963 — alleging that Dallas officials were involved. (Nonfiction)
4. “Chasing the Boogeyman’’ by Richard Chizmar (Gallery Books) A deeply conservative community in rural Maryland is shaken to the core by a series of ritualistic slayings of teens in the summer of 1988, prompting two fledgling journalists to investigate and risk their lives in the process. The author previously teamed up with Stephen King to write the bestseller “Gwendy's Button Box.’’ (Fiction)
5. “Baptists & Bootleggers: A Prohibition Expedition Through the South...with Cocktail Recipes’’ by Kathryn Smith (Evening Post Books) Historian Smith highlights colorful characters such as Carry Nation, Al Capone, George Remus, F. Scott Fitzgerald as she chronicles the South’s unique role in the years (1920-1933) when alcohol was banned by the federal government.
The book takes readers to major cities and small towns, all of which struggled between the Baptists and their teetotaling allies who preached temperance and the bootleggers who got rich providing what imbibers couldn’t buy legally. (Nonfiction)
