    I thought Howard had 23 million fans ...

    With all the publicity, TV appearances, book tour, Howard's Sirius/XM show mentions, etc, this is the current sales statistics from Amazon as of this date & time (Nov 21, 14 @ 9:55 CST):

    That's pretty good considering it's the most moronic book idea ever.

    Buchwaldco Worldwide is poised to initiate "Operation Buy By the Case".

    So with all the millions $$ spent on her publicity tour, about $8 will be given to NSAL after the necessary sales deductions (pmnt to real author, pmnt to illustrator, taxes, etc)?

    I'll buy a crate when they are cheaper than fire starters.

    I love how everyone on the tour is calling her an animal activist. She wears leather you dopes.

    The surprising part of that 77 people in Canada bought that crap and 3 people in the UK. Even more surprising is no one in Germany has bought a copy. You would think she has some "friends" in Germany that might help her out.

    Hey - you are right. Where's all her European modeling contacts to help with book sales, too??

    Shame on them.

    where does the money come from for printing, artwork, materials and manufacturing? wouldn't it make more sense to take that money, don't publish anything and donate it to the stupid charity? total rich person vanity project which generates zero, point, zero for the actual charity.

    I will say that the book was a massive success. Book sales are irrelevant. The point of this book was to get Beth tons of publicity and appearances on talk shows. It worked perfectly.

    Does anyone realize the value of getting on the Today Show alone? Any author would kill for the opportunity. Beth has NBC, Rachel Ray, Howie and Team Buchwald behind her and she can only manage a few hundred copies. That is shockingly disgraceful.

    Honestly, she is a complete waste of time. Though heavily promoted, all of her media ventures have failed miserably. Somebody needs to sit her down and tell her the truth.
