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 18, 2022:

1. “Suppression, Deception, Snobbery, and Bias: Why the Press Gets So Much Wrong ― And Just Doesn't Care’’ by Ari Fleischer (Broadside Books)

The former White House press secretary under George W. Bush believes the nation’s misinformation problem is coming from inside the mainstream media, resulting in most Americans living in a media-created fantasyland. He says today’s mainstream media is dominated by college-educated Democrats who write stories for other college-educated Democrats. He says these journalists haven’t just slanted the media, they take sides in our debates and are too often activists for a cause. He calls for the press to face up to why so few people trust them and why they continue to lose viewers and readers. (Nonfiction)

2. “Against War: Building a Culture of Peace’’ by Pope Francis (Orbis Books)

From the beginning of his papacy, Pope Francis has made concern and action for peace and nonviolence one of his signature themes. In this book, he tackles the crisis in Ukraine. “Faced with the images of death that come to us from Ukraine, it is difficult to hope. Yet there are seeds of hope. There are millions who do not aspire to war, who do not justify war,’’ the pontiff writes. “Together we must commit ourselves to building a world that is more peaceful because it is more just, where it is peace that triumphs and not the folly of war; justice, and not the injustice of war; mutual forgiveness, and not the hatred that divides and makes us see the other, the person who is different from us, as an enemy.” (Nonfiction)

3. “Defeating Big Government Socialism: Saving America's Future’’ by Newt Gingrich (Center Street)

The former Republican House speaker, presidential candidate, and bestselling author, Newt Gingrich argues that big government socialism is crippling America — and offers strategies and insights for everyday citizens to overcome its influence. He delves into such topics as Critical Race Theory, vaccine mandates, tax increases, rising inflation and online censorship and how, by dealing with them, we can create a safer, more prosperous, and secure future for America. (Nonfiction)

4. “Gettysburg: Three Days That Saved the United States’’ by Ben Nussbaum (Fox Chapel Publishing)

Rare photos and new insights highlight this detailed look at the three-day battle in Pennsylvania regarded as the turning point of the American Civil War — from the first shots fired July 1, 1863, to Robert E. Lee's losing gamble known as Pickett's Charge on July 3 that resulted in thousands of Confederates being driven back by Union forces. The book features contributions by leading experts, historians, award-winning authors, professors, and scholars. (Nonfiction)

5. “Bad City: Peril and Power in the City of Angels’’ by Paul Pringle (Celadon)

In April 2016, Los Angeles Times reporter Paul Pringle received a salacious tip about a drug overdose involving one of the University of Southern California’s shining stars, Dr. Carmen Puliafito, head of its prestigious medical school. Pringle knew reporting the story wouldn’t be a walk in the park, since USC is one of the biggest employers in Los Angeles and casts a long shadow. But what he couldn’t have foreseen was that this tip would lead to the unveiling of not one major scandal at USC but two, wrapped in a web of crimes and cover-ups. The rot rooted out by Pringle and his colleagues at the Times would creep closer to home than they could have imagined — spilling into their own newsroom. (Nonfiction)
