News & Opinion: DisneyWar Excerpt in WSJ

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:26 PM – Filed under: Publishing Industry

Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal ran an excerpt of the highly-hyped DisneyWar. This piece talks about many of the people problems on the television side of things.

Slate thinks this business scandal book will sell while others haven't. The article quotes sales numbers from others in the genre. These are from Bookscan, which capture retail data and represents about 70% of the U.S. market.

Simon & Schuster has printed 200,000 copies of DisneyWar. I guess we'll see.
