Holt has shipped more than 700,000 hardcover copies of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff and is in its 11th printing, for a total of 1.4 million copies, the company said yesterday. On sale just a week, the expose of the Trump White House has set a record for Holt with its "historic rate of sales velocity driven by consumer demand for books across all formats, including physical hardcovers, e-books and audiobooks."
The book is the No. 1 title on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list dated January 21, based on only two days of sales after its January 5 pub date. It will also be the No. 1 title on the combined print and e-book list.
"We have worked with our suppliers and customers to ensure everybody has books as fast as humanly possible, and expect all accounts to have additional stock within the next few days," Don Weisberg, president of Macmillan Publishers, said. "This could not have happened without the help of the entire community involved in the print and distribution process that we rely on to replenish stock, including the printers, paper manufacturers, our warehouse, truckers, booksellers and our sales force. It has been a thrilling experience to be a part of this."
