NEW YORK (AP) – Bob Woodward’s “Rage” sold more than 600,000 copies in its first week of publication, continuing a yearlong wave of blockbuster books about President Donald Trump.
Simon & Schuster announced on Wednesday that Woodward’s book will be printed for the fourth time, with a total number of books in print of 1.3 million copies. With 18 interviews with President Trump, including one in which he acknowledged the potential seriousness of the coronavirus in February, ‘Rage’ has topped Amazon.com and other bestseller lists since it came out on September 15. Woodward’s previous Trump book, “Fear.” has sold 2 million copies since its release in 2018.
John Bolton’s “The Room Where It Happened” and Mary Trump’s “Too Much and Never Enough,” also Simon & Schuster books, are among others Trump-related works this year that quickly sold hundreds of thousands of copies.
First week sales for “Rage” include hardcovers, audiobooks and e-books.
