The book whose distribution Israel's government tried to stop will be listed as the No. 1 non-fiction best seller in The New York Times' Book Review list of Oct. 7.
The list reflects sales for the week ending Sept. 22, the Times said Wednesday. The previous week a judge had temporarily barred the book's distribution, but an appeals court struck down his order.The book, "By Way of Deception: The Making and Unmaking of a Mossad Officer," written by a one-time Mossad employee, Victor Ostrovsky, supposedly reveals secrets of the Israeli intelligence agency.
Bookstores were swamped with requests for the book when it went on sale Sept. 13. It has become the fastest-selling title of its U.S. publisher, St. Martin's Press, which so far has printed 325,000 copies.
