    "Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead" by Sheryl Sandberg sold 140,000 copies its first week of publication and has gone back to press seven times for additional printings.

Sheryl Sandberg has the ear, and the eyes, of the country's book buyers.
Sandberg's "Lean In" sold 140,000 copies its first week of publication, has gone back to press seven times for additional printings and now has 400,000 copies in print, publisher Alfred A. Knopf announced Wednesday.
It has been at No. 1 on Amazon.com's best seller list since coming out March 11 and will be No. 1 on the hardcover and e-book nonfiction lists appearing in the March 31 edition of the New York Times.
It also has placed high on lists for Barnes & Noble and independent sellers, topping the nonfiction list for IndieBound, a list for independent stores.
Facebook's chief operating officer is hoping to create a national movement to help women advance in the workforce, and her book became the focus of intense debate well before publication.
"'Lean In' is resonating with readers and animating conversations across the country," said Knopf's head of publicity, Paul Bogaards.
