What does this woman believe in?

judith regan
Judith Regan must be furious about her O. J. book being retracted. After all, she once screamed in an editorial meeting “Everybody’s a pussy here but me!”

Back in the day I used to see her occasionally at American Booksellers Association and Book Expo America events. She’s been called “hands down, the most successful editor in the book business.”

I never looked at her that way. But then, I’ve never quite got the hang of gauging success strictly in terms of dollars.

So what does she believe in? Judge for yourself. Following are some of her greatest works (alphabetical by author):

  • Jose Canseco, Juiced
  • Gen. Tommy Franks, American Soldier
  • Kathie Lee Gifford, I Can’t Believe I Said That!
  • Sean Hannity, Deliver Us from Evil
  • Jenna Jameson, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star
  • Sue Johanson, Sex, Sex, and More Sex
  • Ian Kerner, She Comes First: The Thinking Man’s Guide to Pleasuring a Woman
  • Wally Lamb, Couldn’t Keep It to Myself [women in prison]
  • Rush Limbaugh, See I Told You So
  • Legs McNeil, The Other Hollywood: the Uncensored Oral History of the Pornographic Film Industry
  • Michael Moore, Stupid White Men
  • Peggy Noonan, The Case Against Hillary Clinton
  • O.J.Simpson, If I Did It
  • Howard Stern, Private Parts
