I just got a very detailed report from Routledge about sales of Nietzsche on Morality as of the end of 2016. The first edition (2002) has sold not quite 6,500 copies in all formats (though over 6,000 were in paperback unsurprisingly, the rest hardback or e-books). The second edition, which just came out in 2015, has sold almost 1,100 copies in all formats (with the most, about 730, in paperback). As academic book sales go, this is pretty gratifying. Many thanks to readers here who are probably among those who have bought the book over the years and to those who have also assigned the book in their classes!
