Nonfiction Bestsellers — Week of 5/11

Resilience moves up to #1 on the NYT Hardcover Nonfiction list, from #10 last week, reflecting sales from the book’s first full week on sale and Elizabeth Edwards’s amazing publicity tour (she finished up by appearing on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Mercifully, Stewart avoided mentioning what everyone else focused on; her husband’s affair).

The following titles are new to the NYT lists dated 5/31 (sales through 5/16) and the USA Today general list dated  5/21 (sales through 5/17):
