from clive thompson’s blog:
“Here’s a neat cultural moment for you: The strategy guide for the video-game Halo 2 has become Random House’s fastest-selling nonfiction book since Bill Clinton’s My Life last summer. As Random House’s press release reports, the Halo 2 guide sold over 270,000 copies on its first day, Nov. 9. In comparison, Clinton’s book sold 400,000 copies on its initial day.”
conclusion: if “my life” had dual-wielding and xbox live support, it probably would have been the best selling non-fiction book of the decade.
