Bob Woodward’s new book, “Fear: Inside the Trump White House,” sold more than 750,000 copies through its first day of release, the most for any title in Simon & Schuster history, according to the 94-year-old publisher.

The tell-all book by the veteran Watergate reporter, who has written books about every administration dating back to President Nixon, was powered by excerpts published before the book’s public release Tuesday and President Trump’s public rejection of it. Trump called the book “a con on the public” consisting of quotes that are “made up frauds” designed to boost Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

The article goes on to state the following:

The 750,000-plus copies sold combines sales of print copies, ebooks and audiobooks, according to a statement by Simon & Schuster.

The publisher also announced that it ordered a ninth printing, sending the total number of hardcover copies in print above 1.15 million.

“Based on immense pre-publication and ongoing interest, the reading public clearly has an enormous appetite for what we believe, as Woodward says, is ‘a pivot point in history,'” said Simon & Schuster president Jonathan Karp in a Wednesday statement.

Woodward stands by his reporting, which paints a dysfunctional Trump White House and a novice president who is often at odds with top officials in his administration.

Some officials, including chief of staff John Kelly, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, former economic adviser Gary Cohn, White House staff secretary Rob Porter and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley have all publicly disputed accounts pertaining to them in the book.

    Trump might be an amateur president but he’s getting a lot of good stuff done!

    And yet, it was still beaten by a book written by a woman who had never written a book before, “About My Mother: Stories of A Horse-Crazy Daughter and Her Baseball Obsessed Mother” by Peggy Rowe, the mother of Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs. If you want to read a good book, go get that one, feel good stories to make you laugh.
