THE HIGH 'LIFE'
In the course of writing his new book, What Should I Do With My Life?, Po Bronson walked the earth and worked the phones, listening to 900 stories and coming to know 55 relative strangers intimately enough to turn their tales into useful examples for his readers. Marketed as a self-help book -- odd, given the author's previous successes in journalism -- Life got a big push from Bronson's Oprah appearance last month, jumping to No. 2 in its fourth week on the list.
