“The book came out as limited product in 2012, and it was only in February this year we put it on Amazon. Sales were very, very slow – we sold about one book per month,” Skip Coryell, founder of the book’s publisher White Feather Press, told FOX411. “But over the six-day period since Bill [Maher] talked about it on his show, we have sold over 2,000 copies, and it’s still selling very well. I have to say, I now love Bill Maher.”

Although no official sales figures have yet been made available by Amazon or Nielsen BookScan, Coryell said that before Maher’s mocking, the book had just three pages of reviews on Amazon, but in the last few days that has jumped to 33.

The sudden surge in attention has even sparked a sequel.
