Exaggeration?

I recently purchased a second-hand copy of Lev Aptekar’s Wisdom in Chess, published in 1987.

The foreword by International Master Ortvin Sarapu states: "There are more books printed about chess than all other sports and games put together." While I acknowledge there are many books written about chess, that statement must surely be an exaggeration... mustn’t it?
