According to preliminary estimates, the former President of the USA Barack Obama will receive at least $ 20 million for the memoir. It is much more than the royalties from the memoirs of presidents George Bush and bill Clinton.
The Hollywood Reporter notes that bill Clinton at the time received a record $ 15 million for a book of memoirs, written after the expiry of his presidential term. It sold 2.2 million copies. Fee George Bush for a similar book amounted to eight million dollars, but his memoir has sold 2.6 million copies.
It should be noted that Obama has already written two books in 1995 he published his memoir, «Dreams from my father», and in 2008 the election book «the Audacity of hope.» Brodano more than five million copies of both books.
Reporters noted that former first lady Michelle Obama may receive less, and even more money for his memoirs. Experts believe that it will definitely receive a greater fee than he received in 2000, Hillary Clinton for a book of memoirs — eight million dollars.
