By    |   Tuesday, 24 May 2022 05:21 PM EDT

The Newsmax Rising Bestsellers list will do more than stimulate your mind. These reads may challenge your beliefs, broaden your perspectives, excite your curiosities, or widen your imagination.

These books may not necessarily appear on the official New York Times list of bestsellers, but they're the ones our Newsmax audience is reading, talking about, sharing with friends, and buying.

Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of May 16, 2022:

1. “Created Equal: The Painful Past, Confusing Present, and Hopeful Future of Race in America’’ by Dr. Ben Carson, with Candy Carson (Center Street) The renowned surgeon and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development shares his plan to bring the divided nation together. Using his own personal experiences as a member of a racial minority, along with the writings and experiences of others from multiple backgrounds and demographics, Carson analyzes the current state of race relations in America. But instead of using race as an excuse to remake America into something completely antithetical to the Constitution, he suggests ways magnify America's incredible strengths instead of her historical weaknesses. (Nonfiction)

2. “The Fourth Man: The Hunt for a KGB Spy at the Top of the CIA and the Rise of Putin's Russia” by Robert Baer (Hachette Books) In the aftermath of the Cold War, American intelligence caught three high-profiles Russian spies: Aldrich Ames, Edward Lee Howard and Robert Hanssen — but rumors long swirled of another mole, one perhaps more damaging than all the others combined. Baer, a top intelligence analyst and former CIA officer, describes how the agency appointed three pioneering counterintelligence veterans — all women — to investigate. In a cat-and-mouse game, the mole hunters come to a shocking conclusion with profound implications for the future of America, Russia, and the rise of Vladimir Putin. (Nonfiction)

3. “The Power of Crisis: How Three Threats - and Our Response - Will Change the World’’ by Ian Bremmer (Simon & Schuster) A political scientist and foreign affairs expert draws lessons from global challenges of the past 100 years — including the pandemic — to show how we can respond to three great crises he says will unfold over the next decade: global health emergencies, transformative climate change, and the AI revolution. Bremmer says that being unable to reach consensus on any significant political issue, Americans are squandering opportunities to meet the challenges that will soon confront us all. And he maps out a plan in which governments, corporations, and concerned citizens can use these coming crises to create the worldwide prosperity and opportunity that 20th-century globalism promised but failed to deliver. (Nonfiction)

4. “Team America: Patton, MacArthur, Marshall, Eisenhower, and the World They Forged” by Robert L. O’Connell (Harper) Acclaimed military historian O’Connell maps the dynamic history of four military leaders whose extraordinary leadership and strategy led the United States to success during World War I and beyond. He believes what sets Team America apart was their ability to plot brilliant strategies and inspire others. Their mental agility reflected an almost intuitive understanding of how armies in the millions actually functioned and fought, and without them, O’Connell argues, the world we know would be vastly different. (Nonfiction)

5. “The Island’’ by Adrian McKinty (Little, Brown and Company) An American family vacationing in Australia learns of a remote island far from the reach of iPhones and Instagram and off-limits to tourists. Thinking it would be great to get away from it all, they convince a ferry operator to take them to the forbidden retreat — and find themselves trapped in a life-or-death nightmare. In a starred review, Publisher’s Weekly calls it “Deliverance meets The Road Warrior’’ and a “harrowing survival thriller.’’ (Fiction)
