Here’s How Many Books Hillary Sold in One Week. It’s “Remarkable…”

Publisher Simon & Schuster released numbers showing What Happened is the best-selling nonfiction release since Mark Owen’s No Easy Day, a ‘”first hand” account of the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden, the AP reports.

What Happened, has sold 300,000 copies across all formats in the first week, with 168,000 copies sold in hardcover.

Clinton’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, stated that its success is “remarkable” in a statement praising the book.

“The remarkable response to ‘What Happened’ indicates that, notwithstanding all that has been written and discussed over the last year, there is clearly an overwhelming desire among readers to learn about and experience, from Hillary Clinton’s singular perspective, the historic events of the 2016 election,” Simon & Schuster CEO Carolyn Reidy said. “In its candor and immediacy, ‘What Happened’ is satisfying that demand.”


While promoting the book Clinton has been heavily criticized for blaming numerous factors for her election defeat, something the book has also been panned for. The targets have been varied but also include Sen. Bernie Sanders, her primary opponent who many feel was cheated out of the race.

“[Sanders’] attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign,” Clinton wrote.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders also weighed in on the book…

“I think it’s sad that after Hillary Clinton ran one of the most negative campaigns in history and lost, and the last chapter of her public life is going to be now defined by propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks,” Huckabee Sanders said during a press briefing last week.


Clinton responded to the Press Secretary the next day on “The View” saying, “I honestly don’t pay much attention to what she says.”
