Chavez boosts Chomsky book sales

From the beeb:
"A speech by Mr Chavez cited Chomsky's 2003 critique of US policy, Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance, as an "excellent book".

Mr Chavez also said US President George W Bush was the "devil" who had left the UN podium smelling of "sulphur".

Chomsky's book spent the weekend at the top of Amazon.com's bestseller list."
It's a sort of lefty micro-version of the phenomenon that is Oprah recommending books and them subsequently hitting the bestseller list.

If there's anyone out there who has bought a copy as a result of Mr Chavez's recommendation, could you kindly pop into the comments boxes and explain yourself please?

"There's also a pop-up version..."
