Sad News For Prince Harry Following Release Of Spare

On its first day, Spare sold more than 1.43 million copies in all formats in the United States, Canada, and Britain, including pre-orders.

The figure marked the largest first-day sales for any nonfiction book ever published by Penguin Random House, the world’s largest publisher.

But, despite its commercial triumph, there have been big changes at the publishing house in the wake of its release.

Shortly after, Gina Centrello, the president of Random House, the division that published Spare, announced she was leaving the company to retire. And now a second high-profile figure has decided to step down.

Madeline McIntosh, one of the most powerful figures in American book publishing, is leaving her role as chief executive of Penguin Random House U.S., the company announced on Tuesday.

According to the New York Times, she said that even though her tenure as a chief executive might seem short, it had been “an intense five years”.

“I don’t like the idea of sticking in one spot or doing one job forever,” she said.

It follows confirmation that Harry will be making his first public appearance since the release of his book, Spare. The Prince will attend a conference for the mental health charity BetterUp in San Francisco on 7 and 8 March.
