Amazon best seller?

Amazon is showing John Boltonís book as a best seller, but it is only available to pre-order?

And 17 bucks ...

What a [expletive deleted] joke.

Pretty accurate if you ask me. An imbecile throwing $hit at another imbecile is absolutely a best-seller even before he wrote that thing.

Re: Amazon best seller?

How can something be a best-seller before they have even sold 1?

What's the point of this thread, other than you not knowing what a pre-order is? Did you pay for the book and then get mad when it wasn't delivered?

I think the term "sold" generally refers to an item having been paid for. If you order an item online and pay for it, it has been sold to you even though it may not have yet arrived in the post. People who have pre-ordered Bolton's book on amazon have already paid for it.

Re: Amazon best seller?

Oh, on reading the thread thought that this was about a good book, my mistake.

Have already read all the good bits in this one yesterday in the press releases (CNN, BBC, NY Times), and that was just fine.

We all know the subject is a danger to modern society, and this book is only another seal of approval on that.

Yeah, I see no reason to buy a copy and line Bolton's pockets.

While I get a certain Schadenfreud at the details being dished, my opinion of Bolton has not improved. The time to have have come forward with evidence was during the congressional investigation/impeachment hearings.

Besides, I'm just a tad ticked off that Bolton riffed on the title of my favorite Hamilton song.
