The fact that Gores book is languishing on the best-seller list is a sign that it is a total bomb. It is a fairly easy matter for major publishers to juice a book in ways that push it up the best-seller list even when few real people are buying it. (You place large ghost orders with book chains that are later cancelled, send out lots of inventory to distributors even if you know most will be returned, etc.) The fact that it is only No. 21 on the best-seller list tells me that almost no real people are buying the book. Look for it on the remainder table at CostCo for about $1 within weeks. The publisher is certain to take a financial bath on the book; it will not earn back Gores advance and printing costs. . .
Now, can we get back to arguing about truly important matters, like turducken?
