Here are some sales figures in regards to recent wrestling books being put out according to this company Bookscan. Bookscan tracks book sales figures
and account for about 80 percent of retail and online merchants.
Triple H's "Making of the Game" workout book has sold over 19,000 copies and WWE's "Are We There Yet" book (which features road stories from WWE
stars) has sold 10,000 copies. In comparison, Mick Foley's first book sold about 800,000 books. But then again wrestling popularity was at it's peak
then. Those low numbers are considered horrible for book sale standards as they are being marketed by a multi-million dollar company with a very large
built-in base of consumers.
Also, here are some sales figures for some non-WWE books. Wrestlecrap's RD Reynolds book "Death of WCW", has sold about 6,800 copies despite no
promotion. Dusty Rhodes book has sold 1,400 copies. Terry Funk's book has sold 1,500 copies. Harley Race's book has sold 2,300.
And lastly, Jimmy "Mouth Of The South" Hart's autobiography has sold an embarrassingly low amount of books. Jimmy's book has sold a mere 750 copies.
