Things We Saw Today: Hillary Clinton’s What Happened Outsells All Other Non-Fiction Books of the Past Five Years

Despite the fact that reliving the events of the November 2016 U.S. Presidential election is a painful experience, it is certainly worthwhile to have the perspective of the woman at the center of it all. That, and this particular woman is great at inspiring perseverance in the face of that horrific loss for the country. So, it’s no surprise that her book is selling well. What’s worth noting, however, is that it’s already sold 300,000 copies in hardcover, ebook, and audiobook combined! That’s more than any other non-fiction book in the last five years.
And, as Jon Cooper posted on Twitter:
And, unlike the author of “Trump: The Art of the Deal,” @HillaryClinton actually WROTE her book.
