Slow sales for Bachmann’s book
By Steven Levingston

Michele Bachmann’s new book, “Core of Conviction,” has come limping out of the gate, perhaps reflecting the recent hobble in her campaign for the presidency.

In its first two weeks of sales through Dec. 4, the title has sold a mere 3,000 copies, according to Nielsen BookScan.

Perhaps she is whispering to herself, if only ... if only she had created Apple, or if only she had already been president, the 43rd, for example, or if only she had the brilliance of a Wimpy Kid inside her.

In contrast to Bachmann’s effort, the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson sold 379,000 copies in its first week, while George W. Bush’s memoir “Decision Points” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth” both sold more than 430,000 copies in their first week. ...............(more)
