Part of the fun has been seeing who we are now beating on the various Amazon bestseller lists. No, not the main list--ha. The various sublists like books > history > Asia > Afghanistan (17th in Canada) or Kindle > kindle ebooks > politics and social science > politics > international > diplomacy.
I don't really care what counts and what does not count on these lists or how the methodology is constructed. As long as we get some fun outcomes, I am fine with however these things are constructed. Like:
- Outselling Condi Rice, as I am not her biggest fan (amazon.ca, diplomacy list).
- Outselling Noam Chomsky, as, well, you can guess (amazon.ca, international institutions)
- Outselling Musketry Regulations, as that is simply cool. (amazon.com, miltiary life and institutions)
- Outselling George Kennan, even though his being dead for quite a while gives us a bit of an advantage (amazon.com, international diplomacy).
This book was fun to research, fun to co-write, and now fun to promote.
