Where Carson Is Beating Trump: The Best-Seller List
Publishing a book is a rite of passage for almost everyone who aspires to the White House. So how do the presidential candidates stack up based on their book sales?
On Tuesday, Nielsen released the print sales figures for books by the Republican and Democratic candidates, including Donald J. Trump’s business best seller “Trump: The Art of the Deal” and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s memoir “Hard Choices,” and the results were surprising.
Ben Carson, who ended his campaign last week, may have a viable fallback career in publishing: His books have collectively sold about 1.7 million copies in print, according to Nielsen.
