Publisher's Summary

From her years as a presidential press secretary to her 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.
Thoughtful, inspiring, and often surprising, And the Good News Is... traces Dana's unlikely journey through politics, the White House, and television. She has an uncanny ability for knowing what to say and how best to say it. A recurring theme in And the Good News Is... is that planning has never worked for Dana; every time she has made a plan, something unexpected - and often better - has happened.
And the Good News Is... blends a candid self-portrait with advice for allowing one's very best personality traits to shine through, emphasizing that dignity and civility are choices we make for ourselves.

Interesting look into Bush White House and beyond

This book was aptly titled and it was refreshing to hear tales from the political world free of rancor and vitriol. The narration was done especially well and I had no problem imagining Perino saying the words herself. This is a spoiler (can this kind of book have a spoiler?) but the most interesting reveal was Perino confessing that when confronted by especially nasty media questions at White House press briefings, she would secretly shoot a bird at the antagonist while hiding her hand beneath the lectern. An enjoyable seven-hour listen.

- Ed "Retired former magazine editor who is working harder than ever as Mr. Dad to his 13-year-old daughter."

Full of great advise!

Definitely a must read for anyone interested in improving their position in life. Many of the passages, especially the ones about GWB made my eyes leak a little. Gotta love her honesty and devotion.
