The NPD Group market researcher told the outlet that only 300 copies of “America’s Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic” moved in February, while the book has sold over 45,800 copies since its release in October.

NDP analyst Kristen McLean told Bloomberg that a sharp drop in sales in eight weeks is common for political books, but said Cuomo’s book experienced a “steep drop” in sales five weeks ago . It has gone from several thousand to less than 200 copies per week, she said.

McLean said “we cannot confirm why it was dropped”, adding “we will leave this matter to others”.

Cuomo and his administration have come under increasing scrutiny over the past month after New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) released a report in late January finding the state underestimated by as much as 50%. deaths from COVID-19 in nursing homes.

The New York State Legislature passed a bill On Friday, that would revoke Cuomo’s authority to issue new directives without legislative oversight, an emergency power given to him at the start of the pandemic.

Meanwhile, three of Cuomo’s former assistants accused him of sexual harassment. James’ office is currently investigating the charges.

Cuomo rejected calls for his resignation on Wednesday, but apologized to his accusers for his behavior.
