No Easy Day Replaces 50 Shades As Best Seller

Bin Laden Book Takes Over Best Seller Spot - Fifty Shades Moves Down

With the release today of No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden, sex has taken a back seat at Amazon.com

The story of the plan to raid Osama Bin Laden's compound in Pakistan from a military base in Afghanistan and how he was killed, has taken over the number one spot on Amazon.com's best seller list. Replaced, and now number two is Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James.

The sex loaded Trilogy books are now number two, three, five and six on the best seller list. (Number 4? Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Sixth Edition)

No Easy Day, written by Mark Owen and Kevin Maurer, recounts the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group, aka SEAL, and it's 24-man team as they train for the mission to get Bin Laden and how Owen, a pseudonym, accidentally becomes one of the first to enter Bin Laden's room, shooting him in the head and then repeatedly in the body to make sure he was dead.

The Defense Department and other Federal Agencies have been looking into the book's publication to determine if any secrets are revealed and how "Owen" by be liable, after having signed two non-disclosure agreements while in the employ of the government.
