NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Governor Andrew Cuomo tells the riveting story of how he took charge in the fight against COVID-19 as New York became the epicenter of the pandemic, offering hard-won lessons in leadership and his vision for the path forward.

“An impressive road map to dealing with a crisis as serious as any we have faced.”—The Washington Post

When COVID-19 besieged the United States, New York State emerged as the global “ground zero” for a deadly contagion that threatened the lives and livelihoods of millions. Quickly, Governor Andrew Cuomo provided the leadership to address the threat, becoming the standard-bearer of the organized response the country desperately needed. With infection rates spiking and more people dying every day, the systems and functions necessary to combat the pandemic in New York—and America—did not exist. So Cuomo undertook the impossible. He unified people to rise to the challenge and was relentless in his pursuit of scientific facts and data. He quelled fear while implementing an extraordinary plan for flattening the curve of infection. He and his team worked day and night to protect the people of New York, despite roadblocks presented by a president incapable of leadership and addicted to transactional politics.
Taking readers beyond the candid daily briefings that became must-see TV across the globe, and providing a dramatic, day-by-day account of the catastrophe as it unfolded, American Crisis presents the intimate and inspiring thoughts of a leader at an unprecedented historical moment. In his own voice, Andrew Cuomo chronicles the ingenuity and sacrifice required of so many to fight the pandemic, sharing the decision-making that shaped his policy as well as his frank accounting and assessment of his interactions with the federal government, the White House, and other state and local political and health officials. Real leadership, he shows, requires clear communication, compassion for others, and a commitment to truth-telling—no matter how frightening the facts may be.
Including a game plan for what we as individuals—and as a nation—need to do to protect ourselves against this disaster and those to come, American Crisis is a remarkable portrait of selfless leadership and a gritty story of difficult choices that points the way to a safer future for all of us.

  • Why?

    By Twatsa
    This man is a murderer and abuses woman but you’re still letting him profit by selling this garbage. Meanwhile I can’t get the children’s book I wanted because ebooks decided Dr. Seuss is racist. What is going on in America?
  • Despicable!

    15 bucks? I wouldn’t even spend a Mexican peso on it if I had one. Books by real intellectuals are cheaper too. Total money laundering.. funny that he is still free while conservatives get thrown in prison or accused of the most ridiculous things.. this man is a murderer and a con artist!

    By veritate et iustitia
    Prematurely self congratulatory and shameless attempt to profit from the pandemic.
  • Disgusting

    By Infern08
    Whether you think lockdowns and masks are good or bad, it is an irrefutable fact that Cuomo and De Blasio did a terrible job with New York. It has the second highest death rate per capita. He is a pity party combined with a boastful idiot.
  • Nope.
