|A Doctor in the House|
MPH general manager Tai Kwai Meng said that more than 5,000 copies were sold yesterday – the first day the book, A Doctor in the House, went on sale.
More than 500 copies were sold at the MPH outlet in Mid Valley Megamall where a beaming Dr Mahathir launched the book and autographed copies for the first 50 buyers.
Many who failed to get his autograph asked Dr Mahathir’s wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali to autograph their copies instead.
MPH Group chief executive officer Ng Tieh Chuan said publishing and distributing the book was a logistics challenge for MPH.
Ng said the Bahasa Malaysia version would be out soon and there were requests to translate the book into several other languages, including Chinese.
