The Silent State made it into the bestseller list last week getting to Number 28 in the official Nielson non-fiction chart. Hooray! It was also in Amazon’s top 100 books for the first two weeks of publication and is still hovering between 100 and 150. The publisher tells me we are now in the third re-print. It’s quite a thrill to be a serious book nudging aside various chefs and celebs, even for a brief time. Still a long way to go before I give Ben Goldacre a run for his money.
