First-week sales of Paul Ryan's book slow

Washington (CNN) – Rep. Paul Ryan's first solo book sold 6,266 copies in its first week of publication, according to Nielsen Bookscan data provided to CNN by a publisher.

The number puts Ryan's "The Way Forward" behind two other books by conservative authors, "America" by Dinesh D’Souza and "One Nation" by Ben Carson, both of which have been out longer than "The Way Forward," according Jason Pinter, the founder and publisher of Polis Books.
