Hillary Clinton’s most recent memoir has been overtaken in book sales by Ben Carson’s latest volume.
By August 10, Carson’s “One Nation” had sold 225,000 copies, surpassing Clinton’s “Hard Choices” (which had 223,000 copies sold), according to Nielsen BookScan numbers.
This places the former neurosurgeon’s book as the second best-selling nonfiction book of the year, with Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Jesus” coming in first at nearly 229,000, as Slate reports.
Via The Daily Caller:
Nielsen BookScan’s survey “currently covers approximately 85 percent of the print book market,” according to the company.
Although Carson’s advance has not been disclosed yet, it is unlikely to compare to Clinton’s impressive $14 million for her book – an advance second to only one in history, as The Daily Caller points out.
“One Nation” is considerably shorter than “Hard Choices”; and at $9.05 less than Clinton’s tome, Slate notes, “he gets bragging rights if he decides to jump into politics.”
Carson has continued to grow in popularity in the conservative sphere, very likely due to his forthright attitude. He is considering a possible run in the 2016 presidential election as a Republican contender. Should she choose to enter the race, Clinton is the Democratic Party’s possible lead contender.
