RUDYLICIOUS

He leads by example. Rudy Giuliani called his can-do memoir Leadership, and what better way to live up to his title than by directing the 705,000 copies of his book in print straight to No. 1? In fiction, Alice Sebold takes her own page from Rudy’s book, reacquiring the top slot from Stephen King and Nicholas Sparks this week. That’s only her latest high-profile power play: Last month she held off Tom Clancy.
