NEW YORK, July 23—Simon & Schuster announced today that Mary L. Trump’s Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man has sold a total of more than 1.35 million copies across all formats through the first week on sale in the U.S. The combined sales figure includes pre-orders, sales of print books, ebooks, and e-audiobooks, as well as orders from consumers that are as yet unfulfilled due to extraordinary demand. The publisher has ordered a 17th printing of the book that when complete will bring the number of hardcover copies in print to 1.35 million.

Too Much and Never Enough is already an international bestseller, #1 in Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and #2 in Australia. The book is published by Simon & Schuster in Australia, Canada, India, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Foreign rights have been sold in five languages so far (foreign rights are held by WME).

Jonathan Karp, Chief Executive Officer of Simon & Schuster, says “Mary Trump’s memoir has transcended the usual ceiling for political books to reach a larger audience of people who want to read stories about unusual families. We knew Too Much and Never Enough would make news and offer fascinating psychological insights into the president, but we’re moved to see how deeply the book has touched readers, and thrilled to have people compare the book to The Godfather.”
