How to create a best-selling book title

Here's a NYT article about the trend in publishing to give book's titles that are spin-offs of previous best sellers. So, Freakonomics has spawned Obamanomics, Womenomics, and various other -nomic titles. Other examples of knock-off titles are based on Prozac Nation and the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.

Not wanting to be left behind, I think that I'll write a sure-fire best seller. How about this:

The Rise and Fall of American Christianity: The Story of a Freakonation by a Rogue Sociologist.

Any other ideas?

Thanks David!

How about a book on the financial aspects of lolcat eating habits - "Nomonomics"

Well I can't think of a snappy title right now but I just wanted to applaud you for admitting online to being a Christian! Why, when there are millions of Christians, can a few liberals get the 10 Commandments and statues of various Bible related subjects removed from our public buildings. Christians founded this country. Lets not let Liberals take it away from us piece by piece.
God Bless
