It’s been a while since Jon Stewart featured an author on his show. On Monday, he demonstrated how effective his book recommendations can be. Introducing Jon Ronson, author of The Psychopath Test, he announced “We’re big fans of your work” (Ronson also wrote The Men Who Stare at Goats, which was adapted as a movie starring George Clooney).

As a result of the appearance, the Psychopath Test rose to #3 on Amazon sales rankings. It received a mixed review from Janet Maslin in the NYT on Monday.

In libraries, holds are heavy on light ordering.
