Don’t go too far because starting Saturday I will making continual updates to this post, reporting the books movement up the Amazon charts. This will be your go to post to find out how the plan is being carried out.

You can also follow the conversation on Twitter. Gavin (@servantofchaos), Drew (@DrewMcLellan) and I (@freshpeel) will be giving a play-by-play throughout the day. Join in the fun!


Since this is a global effort, I thought I would post the ranking as of 2pm CST on March 28th as a beginning marker. The ranking has already gone up in the last couple of hours because of sales from the other side of the world.

Wow! We’re at #368 in books and I guess Amazon finally added the book to the Business category, which we are sitting at #53. I’m seeing #1 in Business! Lets go!

Amazon Rank on March 29th at 3:15pm

It’s been 2 solid hours suspended at #368. There’s still a lot of conversation around swimming around Twitter and the blogosphere, so I have my doubts that we’re finished here. Let’s break the top 100!


March 29th @ 5:00pm – #368

Amazon Rank on March 29th at 5:00pm

Still no change since 1:15pm. I’d still like to see the book make it into the top 50 Business books.

Amazon Rank on March 29th at 6:45pm

We’re still holding on to the 39th spot in business bestsellers and ranked #293 on Amazon overall. Gather up any and everyone you know. We need one last push! Let’s break top 100!

Amazon Rank on March 29th at 9:00pm

It looks like things are slowing down a bit. Lets give it one more hour to see if we can give it one last jolt! If you haven’t gotten a copy yet, better do it fast.

Amazon Rank on March 29th at 10:00pm

We made one last push up the charts that came in just under the wire!

What an amazing day! I along with the 103 authors of The Age of Conversation thank everyone that bought a copy (or more) of the book and helped generate buzz. Our combined efforts created a wave of conversation, blowing up on blogs, Twitter and other social media outlets, ultimately propelling the book from being ranked at 102,282 all the way to #36 on the Business Bestsellers list and #262 overall. Thanks for joining the rush!

I can’t wait to see what The Age of Conversation 2 has up it’s sleeve.
