Dr Mosley and Dr Bailey celebrated the milestone at Simon & Schuster’s Sydney office this month. Dr Mosley was in Australia filming a new, three-part SBS TV documentary series Australia’s Health Revolution, which will air in 2021.
Dr Michael Mosley said: ‘We are delighted by the news that we’ve sold 1 million books down under. Thank you to all the Australian and New Zealand booksellers who continue to support us by championing our books, we are immensely grateful.’
Dr Mosley’s most popular book is The Fast 800, which has sold more than 186,000 copies through BookScan, making it Australia’s favourite diet. The companion recipe book The Fast 800 Recipe Book by Dr Clare Bailey and Justine Pattison has now sold more than 110,000 copies through BookScan.
Due to overwhelming popularity and demand, Simon & Schuster Australia is publishing an additional companion cookbook The Fast 800 Easy by Dr Clare Bailey and Justine Pattison on 7 January 2021.
The Australian and New Zealand edition of The Fast 800 Easy includes 130 super simple recipes to help you through your 800-calorie fasting days, as well as options to adapt meat dishes for vegetarians and easy additions to enable you to feed the whole family.
