Soheil, which member of the forum do you think is best informed about the Persian-language chess book market?

I know the Iranian market. I don't know about your market.
Considering this is an introductory book, and that there are many more established introductory books, and that I have not yet made it widely available, I think it has sold very well.

id say without a marketing strategy that is awesome. Many writers sell far less books.



Well done on getting it translated.
