It’s a bird…it’s a plane…It’s the sales rank for Maddox’s new book! “F*ck Whales” debuted at #1,728 worldwide less than a week ago and has been bombing longer and harder ever since, climbing above 12,000th place as early as this weekend.

For the sake of a stats, I ran a sales estimator on “F*ck Whales” over the last couple of days and graphed it.
