HE'S THE BOSS

For a guy who looks like Frank Perdue, he sure knows how to make an entrance- on the best-seller chart, that is. At No. 5 on the trade list is Ross Perot’s anti-NAFTA treatise, Save Your Job, Save Our Country, featuring, what else, a chapter entitled ”A Giant Sucking Sound” and opinion cards you can mail to Congress. The Clinton administration has released a statement rebutting the book’s content, which has only spurred sales. How about Ross Perot for secretary of labor? Weeks on Fiction list
