Don't expect to sell more than a few hundred copies unless you've got a publisher who knows what he's doing.
Self-publishing with a bit of a budget might get you 5k+ sales over a period of 3-6 months, if you're lucky.
To give an example: #1 rank on Amazon right now (The Grand Design by Hawking) sells 100+ copies a day.
Granted it's "only" Amazon but'd expect higher sales with the biggest online bookstore, aye?
I'll give you more detailed stats via PM :smoke:

Obviously I wouldn't imagine that anyone would do this for money but to change the world but that said, what is needed is some controversy. When we have people burning the book then sales will increase dramatically.

:lol: I know someone who can organise that.... :whistle:
