BEST-SELLERS

GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND

Get in the ring, readers! WWF superstar Mick Foley, best-selling author of Have a Nice Day!, is back for round two. Foley Is Good: And the Real World Is Faker Than Wrestling (230,000 copies in print after three pressruns) body-slams its way up the nonfiction list to No. 8. An interview on The Howard Stern Show and a 10-city signing tour should keep this 35-year-old man in tights in peak selling condition. In fiction, John Sandford returns with the 12th installment to his "Prey" series. His new thriller, Chosen Prey (470,500 copies in print), shoots all the way to No. 2 this week. Is Mary Higgins Clark his next victim?
