“‘Too Much and Never Enough’ has entered the national conversation in a way that few books ever do, becoming a cultural phenomenon and must-read for anyone seeking to understand the singular family dynamic that produced the most powerful man in the world today,” Simon & Schuster CEO Jonathan Karp said in a Thursday statement, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“It is at once a revealing psychological portrait and a work of historic importance.”
The publisher has also ordered a 14th printing of the book, to bring the total number of copies to more than 1,150,000, Deadline reported.
During a Tuesday interview with ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos, Mary Trump called on the president to resign.

On Monday, Judge Hal Greenwald of New York’s Dutchess County Supreme Court ruled that Mary Trump could publicly promote the book after multiple attempts by Robert Trump, the president’s younger brother, to block its release.
