Sales For Sarah Palin’s Second Book Spike Unexpectedly

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin’s second book: America by Heart : Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag has popped up on the Washington Post’s best seller list months after it was first released, and made it as high as number two on the New York Times best seller list.

From the Post:

A new book this week, though not new to the this particular bestseller list, is Sarah Palin’s 2010 “America By Heart” — the fact that it’s selling well again (at least this past week) seems to defy the notion, popping up in scores of articles lately, that her influence is waning and she’s less of a force than she once was.

After the game changing speech Sarah made on Saturday in Wisconsin, I bet sales of the book will continue to be brisk! On Saturday Sarah threw down the gauntlet and proclaimed to both Barack Obama and the Republican establishment: “Game on!

Sarah ‘s first book, Going Rogue, which came out in late October of 2009, was the number one selling non-fiction book of 2009 and spent many weeks at number one on the New York Times best sellers list.

America By Heart is a follow up to Going Rogue and like the first, is a serious policy book, and an engaging read. Though not as heavily promoted as the first, it sold over a million copies [and counting!] This book is a must read for anyone who wishes to understand how Sarah Palin governed Alaska and how she would govern as President.

In addition to the books Sarah has written herself, great read is The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin, which we reviewed here. The authors, Stephen Mansfield and David A Holland, spent a lot of time with the Palin and Heath families, as well as friends of the family.

This book gives you a serious history, not only of Sarah, but her family, Todd’s family, and Alaska itself. It’s a must read book for those who want to understand Sarah Palin and what makes her tick. You can read my review and listen to Stephen Mansfield read some of the book here.

    My God, was this kind & supportive review in the Washington Post?!? Will miracles never cease!! Boy, that’s an interesting view – and, I’ll bet, quite an eye-opener to the Karl Roves of this world – who must be mentally back-peddling a bit and trying to figure out how he/they can be “relevant” to the Palin Wave that’ll now be sweeping the nation!! In your dreams, Karl, in your dreams! As it’s widely known, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression…”

      Karl Rove is pretty much yesterdays news. I’m working on a piece that got seriously derailed today by all of the wild action, but it’s about the Republican establishment, and how they are trying to stop Sarah, just like they tried to stop Ronald Reagan.

      They will fail.

      Sarah and HarperCollins didn’t put nearly as much effort into promoting America By Heart as they did Going Rogue That’s a shame, because her second book is really good. Anyone wanting to know how she would govern as President needs to read that deal.

    I believe Sarah’s second book will continue to grow in popularity. She is an amazing woman and will be a great leader when she is elected president. She’s not going ANYWHERE! GAME ON!

  3. Just Finished Going Rogue. It Was A Great Book. I Will Soon Start Reading America By Heart. Get ’em Sarah! Palin-Bachmann 2012.
