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

  1. “FIGHT BACK: Beat the Coronavirus” by Chauncey W. Crandall, M.D. and Charlotte Libov (Humanix Books). Crandall, a world-renowned cardiologist, and Libov, an award-winning health reporter deliver proven strategies and hope for conquering the COVID-19 pandemic. They outline the latest health information on how to protect yourself, and your family, friends and community from the coronavirus, how to stop the spread of infection, and what to do if you are infected. They also look at potential treatments, vaccines and cures. Crandall is known as “The Praying Doctor,” because, along with medicine, he dispenses prayer and his faith in God — and has he been heralded for his values and message of hope to all his patients. (Nonfiction)
  2.  “The Politics Industry: How Political Innovation Can Break Partisan Gridlock and Save Our Democracy’’ by Katherine M. Gehl and Michael E. Porter (Harvard Business Review Press). The veteran business gurus argue that America’s political system isn’t broken as many think, but rather, it’s working exactly how it is designed to work. The problem, they say, is that it isn’t designed or optimized to work for ordinary citizens in 2020. According to Gehl and Porter, the system has become “a private industry dominated by a textbook duopoly—the Democrats and the Republicans—and plagued and perverted by unhealthy competition between the players.” In turn, it’s incapable of delivering solutions to America's key economic and social challenges. The authors lay out recommendations for “true political innovation.’’ (Nonfiction)
  3. “Stealing Our Democracy: How the Political Assassination of a Governor Threatens Our Nation’’ by Don Siegelman (NewSouth Books). The former Democratic governor of Alabama, convicted on federal corruption charges and sentenced to seven years behind bars, describes the ordeal, which he says was orchestrated by Republican opponents who used the judicial system to take him out. He was sprung after five years, following the pleas of more than 100 former attorneys general and officials, both Democratic and Republican, who contended his prosecution was marred by prosecutorial misconduct. Siegelman says America’s justice system can fail and be abused for political greed and outlines his ideas for its reform. (Nonfiction)
  4. “Superpower Showdown: How the Battle Between Trump and Xi Threatens a New Cold War” by Bob Davis and Lingling Wei (Harper Business). The authors, both prize-winning Wall Street Journal reporters, chronicle the U.S.–China trade war and how relations between the two superpowers  unraveled, darkening prospects for global peace and prosperity. They say the trade battle didn’t start with Trump and won’t end with him, because the U.S. and China have a long and fraught political and economic history which has become more contentious over the past three years―an escalation that has negatively impacted both countries' economies and the world at large―and holds the potential for even more uncertainty and disruption. (Nonfiction)
  5. “Cult of Glory: The Bold and Brutal History of the Texas Rangers” by Doug J. Swanson (Viking). The story of how a hardscrabble team of law enforcers came together in 1823 when Texas was still part of Mexico —to become one of the world’s most famous crime-fighting agencies, one still going strong in 2020. Swanson chronicles the Rangers’ daring escapades as conquerors of the wild and violent Texas frontier — fighting Comanche warriors, chasing outlaws, and serving in the U.S. Army during the Mexican War. As the Lone Star State  developed, the Rangers were called upon to catch rustlers, tame oil boomtowns, and patrol the perilous U.S.-Mexico border, and in the 1930s, began transforming into a professionally trained police force.
