A book to be discussed

Sales data includes pre-orders, print and online sales, audiobooks. ‘The Woman in Me’, released on October 24, has been praised by critics as a compelling account of Britney Spears’ rise to global fame and ongoing trials, including years of ‘guardianship’ given to her controlling father much of her life, as well as the revelation that while in a relationship with Justin Timberlake more than twenty years ago, she had an abortion.

On the day of the release, Spears wrote on Instagram that her book sold more than any other celebrity autobiography in history. The reality, however, is different. So far, it’s not even the best-selling autobiography of 2023.
