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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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, Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist

  • “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, New York Times bestselling author of When Character Was King

  • “According to this unpretentious, yet insightful memoir, this popular Fox News commentator has never been the master of her own agenda. Her jaunty insider political scoop explains how she got accidentally to where she is and what she has heard off camera on her improvised journey.”

    Barnes&, editorial review

  • “Fox News commentator Perino, co-host of The Five, spreads sunshine in a book from which even Fox News haters could extract some useful nuggets.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A Barnes & Noble Editor’s Recommendation
  • A Wall Street Journal Bestseller
