The left did everything they could to destroy Josh Hawley and ruin his chances of publishing his new book.
Professional agitators even got his first publisher to pull out of a deal with him.
But it didn’t work. Hawley’s new book is out and it’s already a bestseller.

Josh Hawley’s Book Debuts As Top 10 Bestseller Despite Cancellation Attempts
Sen. Josh Hawley’s new book, “The Tyranny of Big Tech” is selling at rapid rates following a cancellation attempt by Simon and Schuster in January for his stance on election integrity.
According to Publishers Weekly, Hawley’s book ranks sixth in the nation for hardcover frontlist nonfiction. Since the book was released on May 4, Hawley has sold nearly 21,000 copies and shows no sign of slowing down. In its first week on Amazon’s “Top 20 Most Sold & Most Read Books of the Week” list, Hawley’s book ranked number 15.
The Washington-based Regnery Publishing company made a deal with Hawley shortly after New York-based Simon and Schuster canceled their deal with the senator one day after the Capitol riot due to a “pressure campaign organized by leftist activists.”
Congratulations to Senator Hawley.
The Tyranny of Big Tech is officially a Wall Street Journal and New York Times Best Seller – thanks to everyone who has supported and read the book!

Townhall has some info on the book:
Josh Hawley’s Latest Book Uses Our Founding to Warn of Big Tech: ‘Monopoly and Liberty Are Not Compatible’
Tuesday saw the release of Sen. Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) “The Tyranny of Big Tech,” published by Regnery Publishing, after Simon & Schuster canceled the book in January. Nevertheless, this invaluable work has prevailed and is the top selling book in many categories on Amazon, and 19th overall as of afternoon. The senator spoke to Townhall, going over many of the book’s takeaways.
The book, at 200 pages, is a quick and easy read, mostly because it is so informative. What pleasantly surprised me most of all is that this is a history book. Sen. Hawley confirmed that that was intention, as he explained in the book and in our conversation how concerns with Big Tech goes back to the robber barons of the 19th and 20th century. “We have to go back to our founding,” Hawley emphasized.
There’s also the role President Teddy Roosevelt played, in trying to act as a trust buster, while President Woodrow Wilson really boosted robber barons and their cause of “bigness.”
Sounds like it’s worth checking out!
