Sonia Sotomayor's memoir "My Beloved World" hits #1

"Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor's memoir "My Beloved World" hit number one on the New York Times bestsellers list for hardcover nonfiction."

I am so pleased about this memoir's reach but there's a little irony here, 4-5 years ago I suggested to an undisclosed editor that they reach out to Sonia and offer her a book deal for her remarkable story. I was gently dismissed - "it wouldn't sell, she was "too young"... It's amazing to me now, how well her book is doing and demonstrates to me that I should always trust my instincts in spite of of naysayers because I am usually spot on. Bravo, Sonia!
