Bestselling Ghosts: April 2010

Every month, we showcase cover-credited ghostwriters on the New York Times bestseller list for Hardcover Nonfiction. Currently, more than 10% of the top 35 books are written by ghostwriters with cover credit, and you can bet that the percentage written by uncredited ghosts is much higher.

Support your fellow ghostwriters, and this site, by ordering the following books through our affiliate links:

10. American Conspiracies, by Jesse Ventura with Dick Russell. (Skyhorse, $24.95.) The former Minnesota governor questions the official explanation of events like the Kennedy assassination and 9/11.
