The anti-Trump hype swirling around Watergate scoop reporter Bob Woodward’s new book about the president has boosted “Fear” to Number 1 on the Amazon Top 100 list, and it won’t even be available until 9/11.
"Fear: Trump in the White House" is selling fast in pre-sales and Amazon said it is the top seller among political books and in a day where multiple outlets published explosive excerpts the book jumped from 12th place to first place in under six hours.
And the huge book seller isn’t discounting "Fear," keeping the pre-release price at $28.70.
Woodward is already planning his book tour. One of his first stops, set for September 12 in New York, is charging $60 to hear the Washington Post editor discuss his findings. He will be interviewed by Slate’s Jacob Weisberg at 92Y, a cultural center.
The center put this out Tuesday:
New York, NY: Sept 4, 2018 – Watergate journalist Bob Woodward’s new book, FEAR: Trump in the White House, announced as the most acute and penetrating portrait of a sitting president ever published during the first years of an administration, is unprecedented.
