SEAL Target Geronimo: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden is climbing up various bestseller lists — with a bullet! Publisher’s Weekly, as released Thursday, November 17, ranks Geronimo at Number 8 in the Hardcover Non-Fiction category. That’s ahead of Catherine the Great and nipping at the heels of Condoleezza Rice. Pretty interesting company!
Even more exciting is the New York Times Bestsellers list. It should be noted that this famous list is always published a week or so after the fact. So the official release date for the list reflecting sales this week is November 27. But advance notice has SEAL Target Geronimo in these pole positions:
#7, New York Times, Hardcover Nonfiction, dated 11/27/11
#2, New York Times, Nonfiction E-Book, dated 11/27/11
#5, New York Times, Nonfiction Combined Hardcover & E-Book, dated 11/27/11
#8, New York Times, Nonfiction Combined Hardcover & Paperback, dated 11/27/11
Thanks to everyone who bought the book. In an age when it seems we don’t often have a lot of unambiguous heroes, the SEALs who completed this mission clearly fill that bill admirably. And your humble Webmistress can espouse that thought even as the daughter of a West Pointer and career Army officer. (Go Army! Beat Navy!)
