Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else (Penguin Press, 10/11/12) rises to #5 (from #14) on Amazon’s sales rankings today, after the author, Chrystia Freeland’s appearance on Bill Moyers and Company on Friday. Earlier in the week, Freeland appeared on NPR’s Morning Edition and The Colbert Report. In addition, her opinion pieces were published in several magazines and newpapers, including The New Yorker and the New York Times. Libraries are showing heavy holds on light ordering.

Plutocrats is also the first book in the Moyers Book Club, which will post reviews, and interviews over the next few weeks and invites readers and book clubs to join a live chat with the author in four weeks.
