Like mother, like daughter

Chelsea Clinton's new book that profiles global health organizations opened to terrible sales in its first week on the shelves.

Hillary Clinton's daughter Chelsea Clinton co-authored Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why? with Devi Sridhar, a professor of Global Public Health at the University of Edinburgh.

Since the book was released on February 9, Governing Global Health has received less than stellar reviews from Amazon.

According to the Best Sellers Rank that lists the top 100 books on Amazon, Chelsea's book ranks at 17,748. In addition, Governing Global Health was rated 1.6 stars out of 5, based off of forty reviewers as of Wednesday afternoon.

One Amazon customer known as Mr. Mojangles claims that Chelsea's latest release is, "As superficial and boring as its author, who has received a free ride her entire life."

Another Amazon customer said he/she was, "Displeased with overall message. Really didn't come across as my expectations."

Hillary Clinton's most recent book did not fare well in sales either. Hillary co-authored book with her 2016 presidential election running-mate Sen. Tim Kane (D., Va.) titled, Stronger Together: A Blueprint for America's Future.

Stronger Together was described as a flop, selling less than 3,000 copies in its first week. As of mid-February, Stronger together ranks #89,681 overall in Amazon's Best Sellers Rank.

The top customer review by Amy Sterling Casil claims, "This book begins well. The first sentence says, ‘America is great because America is good.' It goes downhill from there."

Chelsea, who has also authored a children's book titled It's Your World, has done little to promote her new book with Sridhar besides a few tweets.

Chelsea recently announced a book tour starting in April for It's Your World, but it is unclear if she will announce a book tour for her Governing Global Health.
