Amazon's Top Ten "Most Polarizing Books of 2008" has a puzzling entry. Here's the top three:
  • 1. The Third Jesus: The Christ We Cannot Ignore by Deepak Chopra
  • 2. Dungeons and Dragons Player's Handbook: Roleplaying Game Core Rules, 4th Edition by Wizards RPG Team
  • 3. The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality by Jerome R. Corsi
I guess the rankings are based on Amazon sales so maybe I should be happy that less people purchased "Obama Nation" than a D&D handbook (the 4th edition!) but it's hard to imagine that being more polarizing--not to mention consequential.

Sadly, Deepak Chopra blasted away the nerds and conservatives in sales to take the #1 spot. Another score for New Age nonsense!
