"How did Cuomo make $783,000 on memoir that sold 3,200 copies?"

The Wall Street Journal, which like HarperCollins is owned by News Corp., in 2014 – under the headline “Betting Big on Cuomo’s Memoir” – first reported that the publisher was having an initial print run of 200,000 copies of the Cuomo book.

The governor made just shy of $168,000 for his state job. Beyond the book royalties, he also reported $445 in interest income and $33,184 in dividend income from a New York City bank that handles his investments.
