The Most Dangerous Book, Kevin Birmingham
This biography of a novel (No. 13) details the story of James Joyce’s modernist classic Ulysses, from its fraught creation to its sensational publication and critical reception.

How Not To Be Wrong, Jordan Ellenberg
The No. 14 book should get some kind of award for grabbiest title. Ellenberg, a number-crunching whiz, explains how the math you promptly forgot after graduation can help you better understand the world around you.

Blood Feud, Edward Klein
Klein’s account of the supposedly vicious rivalry between the Clintons and Obamas has been widely discredited, but it has been splashed about the tabloids and has interested enough of the families’ detractors to hit No. 15 this week.

Invisible, James Patterson & David Ellis
Patterson’s stand-alone about a Carrie Mathison-like FBI researcher landed at No. 10.
