David Gergen Writing Book on Presidential Transitions For Simon & Schuster





David Gergen is working on a book about the Obama administration, according to Alice Mayhew, his editor at Simon & Schuster.

Ms. Mayhew declined to go into detail about Mr. Gergen’s project, but characterized it as as being about “watching an administration take hold.”

“It’s early days,” Ms. Mayhew said by phone this afternoon. “He’s writing about this administration and how it takes office, but he’s writing from the perspective of Gergen, which is unique, I think, as he has worked in so many administrations on the inside.”

UPDATE (6 p.m.) : Simon & Schuster publisher David Rosenthal clarified that Mr. Gergen's book will not deal with the Obama administration specifically, but will explore in general terms what happens when a new administration takes over the presidency.
