Cruz's book, "A Time For Truth: Reigniting the Promise for America," has sold 11,854 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen Bookscan. The book has sold more copies than 18 of the 20 books that will be on the hardcover best-seller list for the week ending July Fourth.

Aziz Ansari's "Modern Romance," which is listed at No. 2, sold fewer than 10,000 copies, Politico's media reporter Dylan Byers noted. And Ann Coulter's "Adios America," which is No. 11, sold slightly more than half as many copies.

Bookscan lists the book at No. 4 on its hardcover list. It also ranks fourth on The Wall Street Journal and Publisher's Weekly hardcover lists and is No. 1 on the Conservative Book Club list. Amazon.com rates it a No. 1 in Political Leader Biographies.

Cruz's publisher, HarperCollins, asked the Times why Cruz's book was not included, and was told the book did not meet its criteria, Politico reported.

"We have uniform standards that we apply to our best-seller list, which includes an analysis of book sales that goes beyond simply the number of books sold," Times spokesperson Eileen Murphy told Politico. "This book didn't meet that standard this week.

"Our goal is that the list reflect authentic best-sellers, so we look at and analyze not just numbers, but patterns of sales for every book," Murphy said.
