I checked the New York Times Best Seller List today and found out that The Revolution: A Manifesto is only #7. What happened? Did we buy all that we were going to buy in the first two weeks? I think we need to step up and buy more. We need to keep the book of the best sellers list for as long as possible.

I think a lot of the problem is stores are way understocked and people can't buy them.

Yes, that could present a problem..

The book stopped selling because there were no more to buy.

After the shelves are restocked, it will go back up.

Also, Barbara Walters wasn't going to be beaten -- she sold 250,000 in a week, which is 6-7 times as many copies as The Revolution has sold by this point.

Where did you find how many copies The Revolution: A Manifesto has sold? I have been looking for that information.

An educated guess based on an early statement by the campaign that the book had sold about 20,000 by early May.

Yesterday, the 20th, I ordered a copy from Amazon. Amazon was waiting for a shipment and could not ship until the 25th.

I am in contact with the publisher and they never said anything about NOT being able to supply copies of the book in the least..... I think SOME has to do with "sales technique" as well as starting with minimal copies until they odds are saw how many will be sold.

They are happy to send me 5k+ copies if needed and I never was told any worries about "wait til we print this or that" but rather, get the order in and we will get it to you a.s.a.p......
