Three New Debut Best-Sellers

There are three  hardcover business books that debuted on today’s Wall Street Journal best-selling list (May 28-29, p. C 16).

They are:

# 4 – NEVER SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE by Christopher Voss (Harper Business)

# 5 – YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A SHARK by Robert Herjavec (St. Martin’s Press)

#10 – MAKERS AND TAKERS by Rana Foroohar (Crown Business)

We will watch to see which of these, if any, make the New York Times business best-seller list.  That is our primary source for selecting books for the First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas.  Click here for information about our monthly event.

Of interest, our August selection at the FFBS, The Ideal Team Player by Patrick Lencioni (Jossey-Bass) climbed from # 7 to # 3 this week.  The Chris Anderson book, TED:  A Guide to Public Speaking (Houghton-Mifflin) dropped from # 3 to # 9 this week.

Anderson’s TED Book Has Strong Debut

The new book by Chris Anderson, TED:  Guide to Public Speaking (Houghton Mifflin, 2016), rocketed to the #3 position in its debut week on the Wall Street Journal best-selling hardcover business list, published on May 21-22 (p. C14).

We rely on the New York Times business best-seller list as our primary source for selecting books for the First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas.  We will consider this book, as well as others, as soon as we see its listing there.

Other new books include The Ideal Team Player (Jossey-Bass, 2016) by Patrick Lencioni at #7.  It debuted at #8 last week.
