'Standing For Something' Due in Paperback Next Month

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley's bestselling book "Standing for Something" will be released in paperback by Random House's Three Rivers Press next month. The book hit national bestseller lists in the US last March when a hardcover edition of the book was released, and stayed on the lists through May.

Written with the aim of reaching a broader, non-LDS audience, the book was called a "manifesto of traditional values" by the book industry's trade magazine, Publishers Weekly. But in spite of the book's stated aim to reach a non-LDS audience, some evidence indicates that the book's strongest sales have been among LDS Church members. continues to indicate that it sells strongest in traditionally Mormon areas like Mesa, Arizona; many areas of Utah, and other Western states.

Since the paperback edition has a significantly lower price, it is likely that this edition will also hit the bestseller lists in the coming months.
