A book of anecdotes as told by Chinese President Xi Jinping has sold nearly 1.5 million copies since it was first published this June.

The book, published by the People's Publishing House, includes over 100 anecdotes taken from hundreds of Xi's speeches and articles, as selected by the People's Daily, the flagship newspaper of the Communist Party of China, and its interpretations of the anecdotes.

"These stories come from history, cultural classics, real life and work," said Kang Zhen, professor of Beijing Normal University. "They demonstrate China's cultural soft power while also offering practical guidance."

The book is not only popular in China, but has also attracted wide attention from overseas media and foreign publishing houses, according to the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television.

Currently, English, Japanese, Russian and Vietnamese versions have been authorized.
