The book was promoted partly in light of the possibility of a Meyer bid in the 2016 presidential election. Meyer staged an extensive promotional tour for the book, primarily in the state of Iowa, where she went to win over possible caucus voters.
From back of book: In the long and distinguished tradition of political memoirs, Selina Meyer's brilliant Some New Beginnings - Our Next American Journey asks some difficult questions. And offers some equally difficult answers...

"This is exactly the book we have all been expecting." -New York Magazine
"Selina Meyer is that rarest of politicians, a woman..." -Entertainment Weekly
"As free of irony as it's possible to get. Selina Meyer has really raised the bar." -The Atlantic
