Books of 1970

By Patrick Mondout

The new decade saw the publication of Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex but Were Afraid To Ask by David Reuben, M.D. It was the best selling non-fiction book of the year and became such a part of the popular culture that Woody Allen released a movie two years later with the same name. Other popular non-fiction titles of 1970 included The Sensuous Woman by J, Up the Organization by Robert Townsend, Jim Bouton's Ball Four, and Body Language by Julius Fast.

The runaway bestseller in the world of fiction was Love Story by Erich Segal. Here's a list of the top ten fiction bestsellers of 1970:
