‘Fire and Fury’ breaks record, with 1.4 million hardcover books on orderAnd they say people don’t read books. In just one week, “Fire and Fury,” Michael Wolff’s exposé of the Trump administration, has broken a record for its publisher. Henry Holt said in a statement Jan. 11 that 1.4 million hardcover books are on order and that more than 700,000 copies have been shipped.
Aardvark Books, the San Francisco store that was likely to close early this year, will live to see another day. The owner of the Mission District building that houses the independent bookstore is no longer listing the property for sale, Hoodline reported. The store will “remain open indefinitely,” its manager told Hoodline. “The store doesn’t make money anymore,” Aardvark Books’ owner, John Hadreas, told The Chronicle in September, after putting the building on the market.
Five months ago, speaking off the cuff at his golf club in New Jersey, Donald Trump warned North Korea that if it continued to threaten the United States, “they will be met with the fire and the fury like the world has never seen.” The words, in their alliteration and biblical-sounding import, were meant to instill shock and demand respect. They certainly did the former, frightening millions into thinking that nuclear annihilation was something this man could cavalierly contemplate.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
