Fox News host Tucker Carlson's book, "Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink…," has vaulted to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, unseating Bob Woodward's "Fear: Inside the Trump White House" after four weeks in the top spot.
Woodward being toppled from the top spot is notable, as it was Barnes and Nobel's fastest-selling book in over three years. On its release day of Sept. 11, for example, it sold more than one copy per second.
Carlson took to Twitter to thank readers for the success of the book.
"A huge THANK YOU to all of the viewers and fans who bought my new book #ShipOfFools," Carlson wrote. Because of you, I just found out that it’s #1 on the @nytimes best sellers list. Thank you all very much."

He reiterated the same sentiment on his show not long thereafter.
Carlson, a one-time CNN and MSNBC host, has been one of Fox's biggest successes in the post Roger Ailes-era.
Carlson consistently finishes in the Top-3 from a ratings perspective in the cable news race along with Fox's Sean Hannity and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow. In the third quarter of this year, Carlson averaged 2.775 million viewers.
Barnes and Noble reported earlier this week that political book sales have skyrocketed in 2018, showing a 57-percent increase from a year earlier.
The top three books from a sales perspective in 2018 are those highly-critical of President Trump, including Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury," which was released in January, former FBI Director James Comey's "A Higher Loyalty," which came out in April and Woodward's "Fear."
