Sachin Tendulkar's autobiography 'Playing it My Way' has already beaten Steve Jobs' biography (by Walter Isaacson) as the best-selling book in this category in India. The record has been broken in less than a day of the Hachette India-published book being launched in Mumbai. ('Felt Humiliated After Being Sacked as Captain')
According to Thomas Abraham, MD, Hachette India, 1,50,000 copies of Sachin's books had been pre-ordered as of Wednesday while the initial print order for the book was 1,10,000 copies. (Multan Declaration Hurt Sachin)
In the hardback category, Sachin's autobiography is even challenging records set by authors like Dan Brown and JK Rowling of the Harry Potter fame, who mainly write fiction.
