"Nothing to Lose", the eagerly anticipated English version of the 2012 number one non-fiction best-seller in Brazil, will be launched at a gala function, hosted by the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God and Brazilian publisher Planeta, in January 2013.
Surpassing sales of Steve Jobs' biography, the Portuguese version "Nada a Perder", made history in Brazil last year, topping the best-seller list for six consecutive weeks and was ranked first by veja magazine and newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo. The book has sold record numbers in all countries where it has been released and is set to smash sales statistics in South Africa.
"Nothing to Lose" is written by journalist Douglas Tavolaro and is an inspirational account of Bishop Edir Macedo's life. Revealing his troubles and triumphs, this extraordinary book has enriched and inspired millions of readers worldwide and changed the lives of inmates in correctional centres globally.
Many of the initial 60 000 copies have already been pre-ordered and the print run is expected to be increased to cover demand. The book will be distributed nationally.
