"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

The way she made it into a series of many short stories with very high resolution pictures made it a very good read.
I was also impressed with her fairness of other views which is far from normal in todays Political books. She has a very uplifting view of life along with respect of where she came from. My wife and I highly recommend this book regardless of which side of the aisle you are on.
Filled with 'feel good' stories about her tenure as White House Press Secretary, this author writes in a tone that is neither heady nor preachy. She simply tells you her stories. One story in particular is of a trip that then President Bush took to a military hospital unannounced and the reaction of the patients and their families. Ms. Perino also gives some solid mentoring advice for those of us who are already in the workplace as well as for those of you who are just ready to branch out. And of course, there are stories about her dog, Jasper, “America's Dog”.
I found this book very easy to read and most certainly I appreciate the overwhelming sentiment of the book~~that being nice matters. In this day and age of anger, frustration and absolute partisanship in the political arena, Ms. Perino gets it right; she is simply, nice.
I really enjoyed reading the book and appreciated Dana's insight. I'm going to give the book to my 19 year old granddaughter who can be quite shy so she can learn from Dana's experiences and her heartfelt knowledge.
