GM: Has being in the news for getting fired helped book sales?

JM: Unquestionably. I'd like to think it would have sold decently anyway. But after the Crooks and Liars blog picked up the Times story, I, no kidding, watched the book on Amazon.com go from around No. 5,000 [a ranking of the most popular books on Amazon, updated hourly] to as high as No. 54 in a matter of hours, and Crooks And Liars is obviously one of the more popular liberal blogs. But I had no idea of the power that it had.

Thanks everyone for staying involved and motivated,..
