Reviews
"This book is more than an engaging memoir on being the voice of the White House. Jen Psaki offers a crash course on how to communicate more effectively in a turbulent world. Regardless of whether you agree with her politics, you can learn a lot from her clarity and candor." --Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Hidden Potential and Think Again, and host of "Re: Thinking"

"Say More is the book I wish I had when I was first thinking about a career in politics. Jen Psaki made one of the hardest jobs in the White House look easy--not just because she's brilliant, tough, and tireless, but because she has an innate ability to connect with almost anyone by listening, empathizing, and treating people as equals. If you want to know what it takes to succeed in politics or in life, this book is for you." --Jon Favreau, host of "Pod Save America"

"You don't have to love politics to love this book. But with candor and humor, Jen shows the reader what it's actually like to be in front of the political spotlight, including how to navigate different kinds of bosses and how to deliver a powerful message." --Chelsea Handler, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Life Will be the Death of Me

"I've seen Jen Psaki in action during some of the most intense crises we faced . . . and also some of the most outrageous. In Say More, Psaki takes readers behind the scenes of campaigns, inside the White House and State Department, tells us the backstories and gives us the tools to learn how to communicate seamlessly and honestly, all with her trademark humility and humor." --Alyssa Mastromonaco, bestselling author of Who Thought This Was a Good Idea? and former Deputy Chief of Staff to President Barack Obama

"Jen Psaki is remarkable in this book, helping us communicate and get value back in all of our relationships. Say More is not just about her career highs--though there have been many. She is a generous storyteller in sharing not just her successes, but her mistakes along the way. All of it helps the reader feel better equipped to SAY MORE!" --Mika Brzezinski, co-host of "Morning Joe"
"Psaki's memoir of swimming in the deep end of the world's most analyzed press pool is as forthright and reassuring as her behind-the-podium personae. The lessons she shares with readers often landed first with her toughest audience, her children. It is precisely this balance of political and journalistic strategies and general life advice that elevates Psaki's narrative beyond the standard Washington insider tell-all. A helpful resource for anyone who knows how much words matter." --Booklist

"Psaki combines the personal and the professional in her enjoyable debut . . . Sprinkled throughout are self-deprecating jabs that highlight her own occasional blunders . . . Such levity helps the book breeze by. Readers need not be political obsessives to appreciate the practical wisdom on offer here." --Publishers Weekly

"Throughout the book, Psaki mines her most sensitive moments for lessons on communication to impart to her readers... The narrative shines brightest when Psaki approaches her personal and professional past with circumspection, infusing her words with humor and vulnerability." --Kirkus
