Portland, OR (Vocus) January 6, 2010 -- The most unlikely winner of the Christmas shopping season is a book about stem cells. Cracking the Stem Cell Code won Best Seller 100 spots in three Amazon category rankings yesterday for its day-one debut at the online retailer. The pre-release coup spotlights strong public interest in the stem cell phenomenon and catapults scientist-author Christian Drapeau into the ranks of the coming year’s non-fiction celebrities.
Cracking the Stem Cell Code, which answers the question “Are Adult Stem Cells the Prescription for Ultimate Health?”, shot to #3 in Alternative Medicine& Healing, #49 in Medicine, and #79 in science on the first day of its Amazon listing. While hardly the typical yuletide purchase what makes its popularity even more surprising is the book doesn’t release until January 1. It was paid pre-order purchases that leapt the book past 99.999 percent of Amazon’s 8 million-plus titles.
“Launching a science book 4 days before Christmas was a gamble for us” said Jay Jessup, publisher at Sutton Hart Press, “but the advance demand by our wholesalers told us they were all forecasting a home run. All the big-interest indicators have been there with Time Magazine’s cover story ‘The Coming Stem Cell Revolution Can Save Your Life’, Christian Drapeau’s standing-room-only audiences for the last 18 months, and the big media outlets trumpeting every advance in this amazing field.”
Author Christian Drapeau MSc, a leading advocate for the health applications of adult stem cells, has been saying for years that adult stem cells hold phenomenal promise in all areas of medicine and human wellness but his theory wasn’t affirmed until recently. Recent discoveries and new studies confirm that adult stem cells work to regenerate damaged or diseased organs and tissues; confirming the author’s theory.
The Amazon wins are terrific to me because they mean that more people are learning adult stem cell science holds phenomenal promise for millions of people experiencing health challenges, but more importantly it spreads information that may very well end up changing the way we view health and practice medicine said author Drapeau, just back from a four continent speaking tour and gearing up for his US book tour which starts early 2010.
