20-21 Best, Most Popular Books Trending on Amazon For U.S. & Readers In Europe

 Book Review - United States & Europe

Online book sales have escalated as people have rediscovered the joy of reading during this pandemic.

It's also a fact that women read more than men. So, seeing the number of women writers shoot up among the bestsellers is not a surprise.

College grads, the next highly likely group to pick up a book have also used the surplus time they've had reading books.

Here are the 20-21 best, most popular books on Amazon that readers are leaving their imprint on:

1.  Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know by Adam Grant

This book releases on February 2, 2021. Grant, an organizational psychologist at Wharton, is a celebrated author with a New York Times bestseller Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World to his name. This book is also available in audio form. 

Think Again, according to Bill and Melinda Gates, is a must-read because the lessons in it are more important in this increasingly divided world we live in.

Another renowned psychologist and Nobel Prize winner in economic sciences, Daniel Kahneman says Think Again shows you that keeping an open mind is a teachable skill. Kahneman also has a best seller to his name: Thinking, Fast And Slow

Grant himself says that Think Again exhorts you to shun your brittle beliefs, conviction and assumptions. You then need to embrace your ability to rethink and unlearn, another set of cognitive skills that he says matter more.  

This critical art, Grant says, of "rethinking: learning to question your opinions and open other people’s minds, can position you for excellence at work and wisdom in life."

You may muse over Grant's psychology and agree that today's world requires most of us to get a grasp of this cognitive skill, making Think Again a must-read. 

2. Just as I Am: A Memoir by Cicely Tyson

This book ran out of stock on Amazon due to an unexpected buying spree, following the author's death on January 28, 2021, two days after her book's launch. She was 96 and promoting her book during the last days.

The first African-American to receive an honorary Oscar,  actress and fashion model and multiple-award winner Tyson was the epitome of success with humbleness for the Black community and the whole of the United States.

She had a great number of ardent fans who'd emulate her. Among them is Patience Philipps, who goes by the hashtag #askmisspatience.

In her review, Philipps writes that she bought Just I am on January 26 while watching Tyson being interviewed by Gayle King, then read the news of Tyson's passing away before her ordered book could arrive.

Philipps says she bought the book because she admires Tyson's perspective on life

Viola Davis, the first African-American woman to earn the 'Triple Crown of Acting' and the narrator of Just I am says Tyson shares truth in the book with dazzling authenticity. These elements along with appearance of various Hollywood and N. Y. stars in the book and vignettes during Tyson's lifetime makes Just I am a captivating read.

3. A Promised Land by Barack Obama

With close to 70,000 ratings and about 90,000 reviews, A Promised Land by the 44th President of The United States needs little or no detailed review. 

His stature, also as a 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate matches his concise writing. 

This NY Times bestseller is Obama's third. The previous two, Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope continue to be popular among readers and on bookshelves.  


Although Rage by journalist Bob Woodward is the latest book published on Donald Trump, the now former president, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man continues to be popular among readers as it a tell-all written by Trump's only niece Mary L. Trump.

Mary is a trained clinical psychologist and holds a PhD from the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies. She has taught graduate courses in trauma, psychopathology, and developmental psychology.

Her book has received flak from few readers who have slammed it as a dull diatribe, cynical and hogwash. However, there are a huge number of reviewers who have praised the book for its insights. 




21. The Law of Innocence by Michael Connelly

BYOD, 5 Other Factors Triggering Demand For Microsoft, Apple, Other Hybrid Devices in 2021

Product Focus - Hybrid Devices BYOD was a growing trend in 2019.  A little more than a year later, this trend of Bring Your Own Device or BOYD, is becoming a norm in 2021, exacerbated primarily due to the Covid-19 pandemic. When the trend of BYOD, Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT), Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) and Bring Your Own PC (BYOPC) began, the reason for it was assigned to IT departments struggling to keep up with yearly technological changes, prompting employees to ask their managements that they be allowed to use their own device to access corporate data. However, as  governments worldwide began announcing lockdown from February 2020 and  work from home picked up speed, IT departments have been using remote access to check the compatibility of an employee's personal device for approval to start working. I've highlighted 5 Reasons Why Demand For Hybrid Devices Have Skyrocketed   in my article on LinkedIn. I've reproduced that article below for your reference: Compani

#INDvENG: 5 Reasons Why India Failed Their One Square Root And Sibley Amazing Tests On Day 1

INDIA V ENGLAND - PAYTM TEST SERIES  REVIEW DAY ONE Cricket fans in India were expecting a Friday Blockbuster that'll see their Australia-triumph heroes, bowling or batting, put England on the back foot. Instead, the first day of the 4-Test series began with returning skipper Virat Kohli and his men failing to solve the square root of Joe test assigned to them. They failed even bigger when they allowed opener Dom Sibley to negotiate his way into form after struggling in Sri Lanka. Here are 5 reasons why Team India failed their test on Day 1:  1. Whose pitch is it anyway? It's a given that the host team prefers the curator of the pitch to prepare a deck that'll offer benefits to the home team from the start. Instead the Chepauk pitch was described by former England and India players now commentating as placid, flat, tepid, docile and probably every synonym that goes along.  It isn't clear as to why would the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) approve the
