The New York Times best seller list is a weekly chart in The New York Times newspaper that keeps track of the "best-selling" books of the week.

 Religious Movements Homepage: Gordon Melton on New Age
Whatever the mechanism of its arrival, the New Age transformation of the whole society would be heralded by the personal transformation of individuals and their adoption of a life-style of continued transformation into a total spiritual being.
New Age literature has abundant examples of such healings, and the stories follow much the same spectrum from the mundane to the spectacular that are found in Roman Catholic and Pentecostal literature.
Through the 1990s, what was called the New Age Movement in the 1980s made a transition from the premillennial vision of an imminent golden age of peace and light to a postmillennial vision of a small group of people operating as the harbinger of the future evolution or Ascension of humanity into a higher life.

 Poynter Online - Books: A Political Battlefield
The daggers were initiated by the Times after two writers in 1995 rounded up credit cards from their co-workers to buy batches of their book in order to propel it onto the prestigious New York Times bestseller list.
Even though there were no daggers in sight last year when her book "Slander" was on the list for 15 weeks, the paperback edition of that book also has been marked with the dreaded dagger.
But, as the books on their list show, their methodology is designed to serve an opinion-maker audience, not to reflect the broad range of tastes and categories that can be found in book publishing.

Shandler's comments about a new data-collection system called Bookscan and the abuses publishers might put to it, are important and valuable as the publishing industry finds itself dragged into the 21st century.
