The publisher says “these first week sales for ‘Fear’ were the largest for any title in Simon & Schuster company history. The publisher has ordered a 10th printing of the book that when complete will bring the number of hardcover copies in print to more than 1,200,000.”

And they say there is no good news anymore.

Fear publisher Simon & Schuster told CNN Tuesday it had sold more than 1.1 million copies since its release a week ago, which made it the fastest seller in the company’s history. The publisher also said it was ordering a 10th printing of the book, pushing the initial sales up to over 1.2 million.
Trump’s Art of the Deal, which was first published in 1987, was indeed a best-seller and proved to be a hit. But an unnamed source told CBS News for a report in August 2016 that the president’s book had sold 1.1 million copies total.
Also, keep in mind that the sales of Trump’s book have gone up since he became president.
I know that all of this seems kind of petty, but just knowing that this is the kind of thing that would send Trump into a rage, just gives me a warm feeling all over.
