Sorry Howard Stern, Right Now Glenn Beck Is The King Of All Media

05_Flatbed_2 - SEPTEMBERFox News host Glenn Beck doesn’t just have a hugely popular television show, a top radio show and a just-completed comedy tour. (Also – he has more keys.)

But he also writes books. And his most recent book will debut as the #1 book on the New York Times bestsellers list. But that’s not all.

Because not only is “Arguing With Idiots” the #1 book on the Times‘ hardcover non-fiction bestseller list, his other book, “Common Sense,” is currently #1 on the paperback non-fiction list.

The release notes “only a handful of authors to have reached #1 on both the fiction and non-fiction New York Times lists” – we’re still working to see how many times its happened where an author has the #1 book in non-fiction paperback and hardcover. Suffice to say, it’s very rare. (Meanwhile online, Sarah Palin has cornered the market right now.)

It’s another notch in the belt of brand “Glenn Beck” – and it has to be some sweet revenge because of the New York Times connection.

Here’s the release from the book’s publisher:

Glenn Beck’s latest book, ARGUING WITH IDIOTS: HOW TO STOP SMALL MINDS AND BIG GOVERNMENT will debut at #1 on the October 11th New York Times hardcover non-fiction bestseller list, giving Glenn two current NYT #1 bestselling books. GLENN BECK’S COMMON SENSE is #1 on the NYT paperback non-fiction list and has sold over 1 million copies since its release on June 16th. It is the book’s 16th straight week on the list.

ARGUING WITH IDIOTS is Beck’s fourth consecutive NYT #1 bestseller and Beck is one of only a handful of authors to have reached #1 on both the fiction and non-fiction New York Times lists.

ARGUING WITH IDIOTS is the first hardcover title released under Beck’s groundbreaking partnership with Simon and Schuster to publish a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books for all age groups.

Using his trademark straightforward approach, Glenn Beck shows readers how to influence everyone within earshot using actual facts and common sense. Packed with humor, illustrations, and informative sidebars loaded with well-researched facts, ARGUING WITH IDIOTS arms readers with the knowledge and know-how for handling any argument.
