On the day of release and before sales began, 150,000 copies had already been pre-ordered to Hachette India



Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s autobiography ‘Playing It My Way’ has broken all records of an adult hardback on pre-order subscriptions across both - fiction and non-fiction - categories, a statement from the publishers said.

Tendulkar’s book broke the record set by Steve Jobs’ biography by Walter Isaacson, which had sold 130,000 copies.

According to reports, on the day of release and before sales began, 150,000 copies had already been pre-ordered to Hachette India, the publishers of the book.

“It is no surprise that the master blaster’s pen talks up records at the same pace as his bat. We’re delighted that he has now notched up a thousand hundreds on debut, and we’re sure that this innings has only just begun,” Thomas Abraham, managing director, Hachette India, said, in a statement.
