#1 New York Times Bestseller#1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller

From her years as a press secretary for a President to her daily debates with colleagues on Fox News' The Five, Dana Perino reveals the lessons she's learned that have guided her through life, including stories from behind the scenes at the White House with President George W. Bush that the cameras never captured in AND THE GOOD NEWS IS...now available in paperback.

Thoughtful, inspiring, and often surprising, AND THE GOOD NEWS IS . . . traces Dana Perino's unlikely journey through politics and television. It's a remarkable American story-made up of equal parts determination and clear-eyed optimism.

From facing professional challenges and confronting personal fears to stepping up to a podium for a President, Dana has come to expect the unexpected and has an uncanny ability to find the good news in any tough situation. AND THE GOOD NEWS IS . . . takes us from her Western childhood in Wyoming and Colorado to a chance meeting on an airplane that changes her life entirely. Then, with refreshing honesty and humor, she recounts her frustration with a string of unsatisfying jobs and living circumstances until a key career tip leads her back to Washington, D.C. to work for the Bush Administration.

Dana also shares here her best work and life lessons-tips that will help you to get your point across convincingly while allowing your own grace and personality to shine through. As someone who still believes in working together to solve the problems our nation faces, Dana offers clear, practical advice on how to restore civility to our personal and public conversations. The result is a fascinating read that can help anyone become more successful, productive, and joyously content.

About the Author:

Dana Perino is a Fox News Contributor and co-host of one of the most popular shows on cable television, The Five. Perino was the first Republican woman to serve as the White House Press Secretary, and served for over seven years in the administration of George W. Bush, including at the Department of Justice after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Perino lives in Manhattan with her husband, Peter McMahon, and their dog, Jasper.

Review:

"This book is a gem--modest and moving, clear and unpretentious. It gives the kind of practical and even ethical advice everyone starting out needs, but it's also funny and full of great stories. Dana is a true role model."―Peggy Noonan

"A lovely memoir, both charming and wise, studded with invaluable life lessons garnered on her fascinating journey to the highest levels of media and government. A wonderful read."―Charles Krauthammer

"Part autobiography, part memoir of a press secretary in the White House, part career and life guidance, and part appeal to civility, Dana Perino's AND THE GOOD NEWS IS... is all parts captivating."―Donna Brazile

"With this delightful blend of the political, personal, and professional, Dana Perino gives us a useful glimpse into one of the most remarkable workplaces in the world, the White House. Political junkies will revel in her insider tales but every reader will come away knowing more about the human dimension of working in the most powerful place on the planet."―Mike McCurry, former White House Press Secretary to President Bill Clinton

"Congrats to Dana Perino! It's a great read, BTW. Little House on the Prairie meets West Wing."―Chris Stirewalt, Digital Politics Editor Fox News

"This book is perfect for anyone interested in politics, media or simply advice about taking courageous chances in life, love and work. Dana has written a book that is as accessible for those who are just starting out on their career path as for those who are long-time students of current events and history."―Julie Roginsky, Fox News Contributor

"The book is a study in character, and why surrounding one's self with people of good character (from Dana's husband, parents and grandparents to Tony Snow and George W. Bush) leads to a life well lived."―Doug Brunt, author of The Means and Ghosts of Manhattan

"If you want to be inspired by a successful woman who goes from ranching in the West, to the White House, to helping in Africa, to a fine marriage and a loving dog, you will find it in this book. You will also find the kind of honest advice about life, politics and the Presidency that makes you feel good. Now there's a rarity."―Marlin Fitzwater, former White House Press Secretary to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush
