Governor Cuomo Somehow Profits Off Book That Hardly Anyone Bought

In 2014, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wrote his memoir, All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics in Life. Needless to say, it wasn’t exactly a best seller.    

In fact, according to the Poughkeepie Journal, Cuomo’s book only sold 3,200 copies. Reports indicate it’s only sold a few hundred copies over the past two years.

Sounds like a loss, especially for publisher HarperCollins, but perhaps not for the Governor.

According to Cuomo’s tax returns, he earned $218,100 off the book in 2016 alone. So how about the total amount since it’s release? Try $783,000.

Cuomo must have secured quite the deal with HarperCollins. The Journal says he makes about $245 per book sold. Buffalo News says the book was originally priced at $29.99, but has since dropped to $13.05.

Controversy has surrounded the book since it’s release three years ago, as you’ll hear in this video posted by CBS Albany.
