Good for him for bringing educational materials to children.

Bad on the article writers for comparing apples (novelists) and oranges (nonfic).

So he sells more novels than Grisham? If not, the whole issue is moronic.

I don't really get the comparison they aren't even dealing with the same things. I could see the comparison if young adult fantasy author out sells Harry Potter. That would be pretty big news.

But the comparison seems more like "University text books sell more copies this year then Stephan King!"

Really no relation there.
