The Newsmax Rising Bestsellers list will do more than stimulate your mind. These reads may challenge your beliefs, broaden your perspectives, excite your curiosities, or widen your imagination.

These books may not necessarily appear on the official New York Times list of bestsellers, but they're the ones our Newsmax audience is reading, talking about, sharing with friends, and even buying.

Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of April 6, 2020:

  1. “Front Row at the Trump Show,’’ by Jonathan Karl (Dutton). Karl, chief White House correspondent for ABC News, goes behind the scenes of the Trump presidency, revealing his fraught relationship with the commander in chief, who has alternately praised the veteran journalist as the best in the business as well as the enemy of the people. According to the publisher, Karl’s book — “only possible because of the surprisingly open relationship’’ between the author and Trump — “shows us an administration rewriting the role of the president on the fly and a press corps that has never been more vital.’’ (Nonfiction)
  2. “The House of Kennedy’’ by James Patterson and Cynthia Fagen (Little, Brown and Company). Patterson, the acclaimed thriller writer, teams up with Fagen, a veteran newspaper and TV journalist, to tell the “true story of Jack, Bobby Joe, Rose, Kick, Ted, Jackie O, and John Jr.’’ They describe the famous family members as both charmed and cursed — “charismatic adventurers, raised to take risks and excel and win at all costs. And they do — but at a price.” (Nonfiction)
  3. “Death in Mud Lick: A Coal Country Fight against the Drug Companies That Delivered the Opioid Epidemic,’’ by Eric Eyre (Scribner). Reporter Eyre won a Pulitzer for his coverage of the opioid crisis — centering on a pharmacy in Kermit, West Virginia, that distributed 12 million opioid pain pills in three years to a town with a population of 382 people—and one woman’s fight for justice after her brother overdosed. Debbie Preece’s investigation took her all the way to three of the biggest drug wholesalers in the country and along with Eyre and a crusading lawyer, uncovered a massive opioid pill-dumping scandal. (Nonfiction)
  4. “The Sum of the People: How the Census Has Shaped Nations, from the Ancient World to the Modern Age,” by Andrew Whitby (Basic Books). The noted data scientist explores the 3,000-year history of the census and traces the making of the modern survey and its political power in the age of big data and surveillance. His research covers ancient China, the Roman Empire, revolutionary America, Nazi-occupied Europe all the way to the U.S. 2020 decennial population census. (Nonfiction)
  5. “The Sword and the Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.” by Peniel E. Joseph (Basic Books). A dual biography of the twentieth century's most iconic African American leaders, who despite markedly different backgrounds, inspired and pushed each other throughout their adult lives. The publisher describes Joseph’s book as “a strikingly revisionist biography, not only of Malcolm and Martin, but also of the movement and era they came to define.’’ (Nonfiction)
