ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo is condemning the federal government’s COVID-19 response and lauding his own leadership efforts in a new book about New York’s battle against the pandemic.

The Democrat’s book, “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic,” was released Tuesday.

In it, Cuomo expresses regret at not ordering New Yorkers to wear masks earlier in the outbreak.

Cuomo also addresses a frequent criticism of his leadership style: That he is overly controlling.

He writes “show me a person who is not controlling, and I’ll show you a person who is probably not highly successful.”
