PM launches book

Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda on June 4 held a book-signing to launch his memoirs of almost four years in office, called ‘Kde je vôla, tam je cesta’ (Where there’s a will there’s a way). More than 50,000 copies of the 120-page book have been distributed to outlets, drawing skepticism from market experts who say sales of 10,000 copies of a book in Slovakia qualified a publication as a ‘best seller’.
