After leaving the Obama White House as the youngest Deputy Chief of Staff, Alyssa Mastromonaco’sgoal was to encourage more women to run for office and to work for those who serve. Flash forward to the 2018 midterms, and it’s clear she accomplished her goal. In her new book, So Heres The Thing: Notes on Growing Up, Growing Older, and Trusting Your Gut, Mastromonaco tackles the thorny issues of working women, politics, pop culture and more. She is known not only for her savvy at helping to run the White House in the Obama years, but also for her quick humor and keen insight on issues facing us today. Alyssa’s first book, Who Thought This Was a Good Idea? jumped to the bestseller lists because you cant beat her stories. She serves on the board of NARAL, and is now an integral part of Crooked Media, the company behind Pod Save America and other wildly popular podcasts.

In conversation with Erin Gloria Ryan, Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor. Erin Gloria Ryan is a comedian and hosts the podcast Hysteria on Crooked Media. Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor are two of the four founders of Crooked Media and two of the four leading voices of Pod Save America. What a night.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Who Thought This Was a Good Idea? comes a fun, frank book of reflections, essays, and interviews on topics important to young women, ranging from politics and career to motherhood, sisterhood, and making and sustaining relationships of all kinds in the age of social media. 
Alyssa Mastromonaco is back with a bold, no-nonsense, and no-holds-barred twenty-first-century girl's guide to life, tackling the highs and lows of bodies, politics, relationships, moms, education, life on the internet, and pop culture. Whether discussing Barbra Streisand or The Bachelor, working in the West Wing or working on finding a wing woman, Alyssa leaves no stone unturned...and no awkward situation unexamined. 
Like her bestseller Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?, SO HERE'S THE THING... brings a sharp eye and outsize sense of humor to the myriad issues facing women the world over, both in and out of the workplace. Along with Alyssa's personal experiences and hard-won life lessons, interviews with women like Monica Lewinsky, Susan Rice, and Chelsea Handler round out this modern woman's guide to, well, just about everything you can think of.
