“My book is about my five years that I spent in the white house in the Obama administration and the two months I spent in the Trump administration as a stenographer. I actually got the job on Craigslist so I was a bit of a fish out of water. The story is really about a young woman, me, finding her way along the corridors of power and making a lot of bad decisions and poor life choices, and having a lot of embarrassing moments, but also figuring out what’s important and what’s not—all while having a front row seat to history.”

“I wrote my book because I had to. I didn’t plan on it to be a book. I kept notebooks for several years after my wife died and at a certain point I started transcribing them and I realized that in doing that it was not just helping me understand certain things but it was giving me a certain kind of distance I needed to move forward.”

“I wrote my book because I didn’t want to have any secrets and I thought that it would be important to talk about the abuses that women face in jail. I also thought it would be important to talk about books, because even though we live in the digital age, there’s nothing better than holding a book in your hand.”

“ASTROBALL is really the result of several twists of fate. In 2014, in SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, I wrote a cover story about what was then the worst team in baseball, one of the worst teams in baseball history, and we predicted on the cover that they would win the 2017 World Series. And then they actually did. I just had to write a book about the new techniques they used to get from the bottom to the top.”

“Here I was really kind of cruising into the very heart of middle age and suddenly there was this compound called Omega-3’s and also this Omega-3 compound was implicitly and explicitly connected to the entire food system of the ocean, at least in how it’s discussed in most magazines and newspapers. I thought this was a good way in to look at a lot of different things going on in the ocean but yet remain focused on what readers are interested in, which is their health and their food.”

“I wrote this book with Rodney Anderson at Stanford because I suffered from chronic pelvic pain for over 20 years and gratefully I found a way to stop it. The recovery from pelvic pain was one of the major miracles of my life. We wrote this book to bring this amazing method to the many who suffer from chronic pelvic pain syndrome who have not found an answer to their condition.”

“I wrote my book because I’ve been thinking about what has gone wrong in our relations between men and women for as long as I’ve been an adult. As I say in the book, my life tracks almost perfectly with the modern second-wave feminist movement, and I think I have a perspective that lifespan gives me about what has gone right and wrong with the movement.”
