Despite a marketing blitz that most writers would give their eye teeth to be dedicated to their work, Hunter Biden’s salacious little tome is not selling like hotcakes by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, it’s such a bomb, one might call it expensive kindling.
That really doesn’t say much about the non-fiction book category as a whole if ten thousand books get you to number twelve.
Really, though, the reason so many may not want to read the book is the content…or lack of it.
Given that the laptop pretty much outlined a life of debauchery financed by cushy jobs obtained thanks to his father’s political connections, but of course, the audience for the book is supposed to want to read about all of that.
Some people just don’t, and considering the audiences of the publicity tour do not have the numbers that other “news” outlets do, the potential sales would be stymied by that alone.
