Former Newark mayor Cory Booker publishes his first book

Booker explains mistakes he made running Newark, other lessons he has learned

The now-NJ state senator is releasing a book that seems to hint at his future aspirations. 

Following a trend set by many presidential candidates, Booker’s writings were released in the midst of a campaign. Booker, however, is not running for president, though he has been mentioned as a potential running mate for former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose candidacy he has endorsed.

“I didn’t write this to speak towards an election,” Booker said in an interview to discuss the book. “I wrote this to talk about us as a country. The best of our culture has been seen when we as a nation recognize that we have more in common than divides us and do the very difficult work of reaching out, going beyond our comfort zone to work with other people.”

Booker’s book will be available in numerous formats on Amazon (including audiobook narrated by the senator) on Feb 16.
