Meantime, the book released in early February hit number one in 4 categories on amazon.com and we are one of the 14 must reads designated by NBC News.

Among reviews from Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings, who wrote the foreward for the book. He said:

April Ryan’s long service in the White House Press Corps has given her an intimate understanding of the value of political leverage for presidents and the American people alike.  The Presidency in Black and White is an important contribution toward achieving that political leverage–that place for us to stand from which we can move our nation toward the society it is meant to become.  For that April Ryan deserves our gratitude and support.
