Nick Offerman’s appearance on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart last night caused his book Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamentals for Delicious Living (Penguin/Dutton) to rise to #51 (from #262) on Amazon’s sales rankings.

On Wednesday, Stewart examines a topic close to his heart, the American educational system (his mother was a teacher) with an author who has appeared on the show before, Diane Ravitch. Her latest book is Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public Schools (RH/Knopf).

On Thursday, Mark Fainaru-Wada, an investigative reporter for ESPN is featured for his book, League of Denial: The NFL, Concussions and the Battle for Truth (RH/Crown/Archetype), which ties in to a documentary that aired earlier this month on PBS’s Frontline.
