Lucky seven for Lean in 15 as The Martian ascends

Joe “the Body Coach” Wicks is number one for the seventh week running, according to Nielsen BookScan’s Total Consumer Market. His seemingly unstoppable début Lean in 15 (Bluebird) sold 30,117 copies for £246,957, dropping only 15.6% in volume week on week.

This is the longest run at number one for any title since John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars (Penguin) spent eight weeks in the top spot during the summer of 2014. It is also the longest consecutive run for a non-fiction title since Jamie Oliver’s 30-Minute Meals (Michael Joseph) reigned supreme for 13 weeks over Christmas 2010.
