How In Demand Is George Allen's Book?

Fri Feb 18, 2011 at 07:22:12 AM EST

Did you know George Allen wrote a book last year? (The Green Miles did not.) The book was titled What Washington Can Learn From the World of Sports, apparently because his dad was a football coach & George played football in high school and here we 41 YEARS LATER and George is still seeing everything through that exact same lens. As Muhammad Ali once said, "The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life." (George will be 59 next month.)

Just eight months after George Allen's book was released, it's already in the bargain bin at 81% off (plus free shipping!):

How in demand is George Allen's book?

While it's difficult to determine exact popularity, Allen's book is ranked #268,910 out of 810,000 books in the Kindle store, which seems to the untrained eye as phenomenally low for a just-released book. Meanwhile, other more astute books on politics remain full price long after their release, either due to their irreplaceable content or due to our nation's college students being fleeced (I report, you decide).

Sister's Book (0.00 / 0)
George Felix's sister's book sold much better, the one about a girl surviving in a family of male siblings who included the elder brother, George, who suffered from testosterone poisoning and who once dragged her down the steps by her hair.

That's the One (0.00 / 0)
Looks like it has kept its value far better than Felix's
