|Hillary Clinton's "What Happened" had a big debut.
Clinton's book http://www.jaguarsrookiestore.com/Jaguars-Dede-Westbrook-Jersey/ , about her stunning presidential election loss in 2016 to Donald Trump, sold more than 300,000 copies in the combined formats of hardcover, e-book and audio, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The book's hardcover sales of 168,000 were the highest opening for any nonfiction release in five years http://www.jaguarsrookiestore.com/Jaguars-Dawuane-Smoot-Jersey/ , according to NPD BookScan, which tracks around 85 percent of retail print sales. Mark Owen's "No Easy Day," a 2012 memoir about the killing of Osama bin Laden, sold more than 250,000 copies in its first week.

Sales for "What Happened" far exceeded the first-week numbers of more than 100,000 copies for Clinton's book about her years as secretary of state, "Hard Choices," which came out in 2014 as she was preparing to launch her run for president. "What Happened" has been at or near the top of the Amazon best-seller list since its publication Sept. 12 despite a suspicious early wave of negative reader reviews http://www.jaguarsrookiestore.com/Jaguars-Corey-Grant-Jersey/ , likely posted by commentators who had not read the book and later pulled by Amazon.
"The remarkable response to 'What Happened' indicates that, notwithstanding all that has been written and discussed over the last year, there is clearly an overwhelming desire among readers to learn about and experience, from Hillary Clinton's singular perspective, the historic events of the 2016 election," Simon & Schuster CEO Carolyn Reidy said in a statement. "In its candor and immediacy http://www.jaguarsrookiestore.com/Jaguars-Chris-Ivory-Jersey/ , 'What Happened' is satisfying that demand."
Clinton's all-time opening was for her memoir, "Living History," a 2003 release that included her first extended comments on the affair between her husband, President Bill Clinton, and White House intern Monica Lewinsky. "Living History" sold more than 600,000 copies in its first week and came out before the rise of e-books and before the collapse of the Borders superstore chain and the struggles of Barnes & Noble weakened the hardcover market.
Clinton http://www.jaguarsrookiestore.com/Jaguars-Chad-Henne-Jersey/ , a Democrat, had promised to let her "guard down" for her first book to come out when she was neither in government nor seeking office. Responses to "What Happened," as with so much of Clinton's political career, have varied widely. Some contended that it was time to "move on" from the elections. Others countered that as the first woman nominated by a major political party she had a vital story to tell and an audience eager to hear about it. Reviewers have called "What Happened" everything from boring and self-serving to revelatory and poignant.
On Oct. 1, "What Happened" will debut at No. 1 on The New York Times' best-seller lists for hardcover and for combined e-book and hardcover. According to Simon & Schuster, the book set a company record for weekly digital audio sales and sold more e-book editions in a week than any nonfiction release from the publisher since Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs in 2011.
BEIJING http://www.jaguarsrookiestore.com/Jaguars-Carson-Tinker-Jersey/ , Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- The State Council said Wednesday that it would step up efforts to expand employment.
"China should encourage entrepreneurship and innovation to create jobs, and help key groups such as college graduates find employment opportunities," according to a statement issued after a State Council executive meeting presided over by Premier Li Keqiang.
"Facing economic downward pressure in recent years, China has made employment a top priority and taken more proactive employment policies, which helped the country add more than 13 million urban jobs every year," the statement said.
It said that demand for jobs was still high and there remained many structural problems http://www.jaguarsrookiestore.com/Jaguars-Cam-Robinson-Jersey/ , which called for increased effort to improve employment.
Entrepreneurship and innovation should be encouraged to create jobs, with measures to be rolled out to support migrant workers to start their own businesses back home, it said
Pro-employment policies should be made to help key groups such as college graduates and laid-off workers from overcapacity cuts.
Vocational education should be improved to meet the demand of the job market, while labor and social security policies should keep up with new employment trends.
Supervision of the labor market should be strengthened to protect the legitimate right of job seekers and migrant workers, the statement said.
At the meeting, the State Council also decided to establish more pilot zones for cross-border e-commerce in cities with development potential.
Since the approval of the first pilot zone more than two years ago http://www.jaguarsrookiestore.com/Jaguars-Calais-Campbell-Jersey/ , the new models experimented there have brought valuable experiences for nationwide application, according to the statement.
China already has 13 pilot zones for cross-border e-commerce in cities including Hangzhou, Shanghai, and Tianjin, where new models for technical standards, business procedures and regulatory mechanisms are implemented.
According to the Ministry of Commerce http://www.jaguarsrookiestore.com/Jaguars-Brandon-Linder-Jersey/ , in 2016 the total trade volume via cross-border e-commerce in the 13 pilot zones more than doubled year-on-year to reach 163.7 billion yuan (24.9 billion U.S. dollars).
The meeting also decided to extend the transition period for supervision of cross-border e-commerce retail imports an extra year, to the end of 2018.
