"Fire and Fury" author Michael Wolff told The New Yorker that 1 million books sold in the first four days of its controversial release.

Wolff made the point to contributing writer Susan Glasser in the context of the myriad factual errors that are pervasive throughout his takedown of President Donald Trump.

Wolff is still preaching about the larger truth of his book carrying far more important details than the many factual errors of people, places and details.

"I'm going around saying, 'It's just a book,' but it has become something so much larger," Wolff told Glasser. "The President seems to think this book is some kind of significant threat, and that changes the context."

Wolff told Glasser that all of his factual errors would get fixed for the next edition, but that to focus on them is akin to not seeing the forest through the trees.

"The reader is basically going to have to trust me on that, or trust his own sense of, does this comport with everything else he knows?" Wolff told Glasser. "That's how you get an inside portrait."

Wolff also said that he started in neutral when he set out to write the book.

"I had no preconception," Wolff said. "I was perfectly willing to write a 'Trump can be successful' kind of thing, a contrarian view that is reasonably up my alley.

"Then I just started to listen to these guys, and they started to talk to me, and it was like, 'Oh, God!' These senior people say, 'Do you have any idea what it is like to work for this man?'" Wolff told Glasser.
