friedman crops up more often than just about any other author in the clearance section at the resale bookstore. this is my primary metric for quality. also i read one of his books and it sucked, he was like the malcolm gladwell of international economics/geopolitics.

other contenders for most frequently resold author: bill clinton, shakespeare.

Shakespeare is pretty excited to have his stuff still in print.

and clinton isn't??

Yeah, but Clinton's mostly still alive. Imagine his excitement if he weren't.
