'Astonishing' sales numbers for book by George W. Bush

The book by George W. Bush has as many sales in one month as the Bill Clinton book did in six years.

From a report at the link below:

Former U.S. President George W Bush’s memoir has sold an astonishing two million copies since it was released in early November – and it’s not even in paperback yet.

‘Decision Points’, published both in hardcover and e-book form, is flying off the shelves, the Crown Publishing Group says.

By contrast, former president Bill Clinton’s memoir, ‘My Life’, has logged sales of 2.2million copies since it was first published in 2004.

A spokesman for the publisher called the performance remarkable and said he could not think of any other hardcover nonfiction books in 2010 that had sold even one million copies, much less two!
