(CNSNews.com) -- Both Dinesh D’Souza’s "America" and Edward Klein’s "Blood Feud" are ahead of former First Lady Hillary Clinton’s memoir, "Hard Choices", in the hardcover nonfiction category on the New York Times Best Sellers List for July 27.

D’Souza, a leading conservative political commentator and author, has the #2 spot, while Klein, a journalist and author of several books on American politics, follows at #3.

Clinton settles for fourth place, just ahead of Ben Carson’s "One Nation", which comes in at #5.

D'Souza's "America: Imagine a World Without Her" counters anti-American progressivism with “a defense of America against the view that its power in the world should be diminished.”

The book has also been made into a documentary film directed by D’Souza, which grossed $5 million in its first week.

Like Clinton’s "Hard Choices", Klein’s "Blood Feud" takes a look at the Clinton family, albeit in a less-than-favorable light, as it describes animosity between the Clinton and Obama families.

Carson’s "One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future" calls for American unity and offers solutions to the crises faced by modern Americans “based on capitalism, not government.”

This is only the latest in a series of hard knocks for "Hard Choices", which was published on June 10 and chronicles Clinton’s experience as Secretary of State.

Less than a month after its release, Hillary’s book plummeted below the Amazon Top 100 list to #102.

And according to the Hawking Index, the majority of those who do purchase her memoir don’t manage to progress past the first few pages.
