Jimmy Barnes Has The Number One Book In Australia

in News

Jimmy Barnes has delivered his third best-seller with ‘Killing Time’.

‘Killing Time’ has debuted as Australia’s number 1 non-fiction book overall, number 1 in Australian non-fiction books, and number 1 in autobiography, as measured by Nielsen BookScan. Jimmy’s two previous books ‘Working Class Boy’ and ‘Working Class Man’ also achieved Top Seller status.

Jim Demetriou, HarperCollins’ CEO, said: ‘Congratulations to Jimmy on another record-breaking achievement – his third book goes straight to number 1 in non-fiction and he sits near the top of the overall Australian bestseller charts this week alongside Australia’s finest writers.’

Jimmy Barnes said, ‘I’m grateful to everyone who’s supported this new book – it’s never taken for granted. Writing all these short stories helped me pass time over a challenging year. Hopefully, reading them can do the same for other people.’
