Despite all of the media hubbub, the book has sold a total of 16,000 copies. More telling, 11,000 of those sales came in the first week it was on bookshelves.
The book had an announced first printing of 150,000 copies, but is clearly falling woefully short of expectations.
At the Rizzoli Bookstore in midtown Manhattan, "A-Rod" has sold two copies.
Twenty-seven copies have sold at Posman Books, based in Grand Central Terminal, but none in the past two weeks.
"I don't think he's ever been embraced by serious fans," Logan Fox, a manager at Posman, said Wednesday. "He's still considered an outsider."
There are obviously more factors that are contributing to the lackluster numbers, but which one of these is most responsible for the work performing so poorly? Are we just A-Rod-ed out or did we get all of the juicy stuff before this book even went on sale?
