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 buying.

Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of July 4, 2022:

1. “In the Houses of Their Dead: The Lincolns, the Booths, and the Spirits’’ by Terry Alford (Liveright)

The first book about Abraham Lincoln to focus on the Republican president’s fascination with spiritualism, and how it linked him, uncannily, to the man who would assassinate him. Alford, a historian, reveals both the Lincoln and Booth families — plagued by tragedies — turned to spiritualism, a new fad that held that the dead could be contacted by the living. Remarkably, the Lincolns and the Booths even used the same mediums, including one who warned the president after listening to the ravings of another of his clients, John Wilkes Booth. (Nonfiction)

2. "The Desperate Hours: One Hospital's Fight to Save a City on the Pandemic's Front Lines’’ by Marie Brenner (Flatiron Books)

Brenner, granted unprecedented 18-month access to the entire New York-Presbyterian Hospital system, tells the story of the doctors, nurses, residents, researchers, and suppliers who tried to save lives across New York City as COVID-19 spread. Drawing on more than 200 interviews, she takes readers inside ICU units, operating rooms, clinics and executive offices to show how the war against the pandemic was waged on the front line. (Nonfiction)

3. “The Man Who Broke Capitalism: How Jack Welch Gutted the Heartland and Crushed the Soul of Corporate America ― and How to Undo His Legacy’’ by David Gelles (Simon & Schuster)

Gelles, a New York Times business reporter, argues that Welch — who took over General Electric and rose to fame as the first celebrity CEO — single-handedly ushered in a new, cutthroat era of American capitalism that continues to this day. He writes that Welch’s celebrated emphasis on increasing shareholder value by any means necessary, including layoffs, outsourcing, offshoring, acquisitions and buybacks, became the norm in American business. (Nonfiction)

4. “Sparring Partners’’ by John Grisham (Doubleday)

The bestselling novelist’s latest effort is a collection of three novella-length legal thrillers. In the title story, a law firm is inherited by two brothers — both successful young attorneys — when their father goes to prison. But the firm quickly faces implosion because of the loathing the brothers have for each other. (Fiction)

5. “The Next Time I Die’’ by Jason Starr (Hard Case Crime)

A criminal defense attorney, knifed on a Manhattan street, awakens in a hospital bed to find the whole world changed – a different president in the White House, a loving family when he’d been on the verge of divorce, and more money in the bank than he’s ever seen. There’s a dark side to it, though. (Fiction)
