Best Seller Lists!!

I am grateful for the huge amount of accolades and acknowledgment “Surviving your Serengeti has received from numerous leading newspapers, organizations and bookstores by being listed as a best seller.

Thank you!

Listed on over 10 Best Sellers lists!

It is immensely gratifying that the message of the fable has been so well received and is being shared with so many people. Also thrilling is the over 50 reviews we have received on Amazon (all 5 stars) and the 10 reviews we have received on (all 5 stars).

Thank you to everyone that posted (and will still post) a review.

Below a summary of the bestseller lists that we have seen – some are overall best sellers lists, some are non-fiction best sellers, some are hardcover lists and some are for the business books. Amazon provides much more detail and lists in multiple categories (usually 3 – 5) – more than any other distributor/retailer/newspaper.
