Threshold Editions To Publish New Book By Former Vice President Dick Cheney And Liz Cheney


NEW YORK, April 7, 2015 – Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, will publish EXCEPTIONAL: Why The World Needs a Powerful America by former Vice President Dick Cheney and Liz Cheney, it was announced today by Louise Burke, President and Publisher.

Drawing on decades of experience in politics and policy, this unique father-daughter team will issue a clarion call to action and provide a blueprint for restoring American power and influence in the world. They will tell the story of America’s unparalleled achievements in the world beginning with World War II, explain the damage done since 2009 by President Obama, and lay out the questions we must answer and the steps we must take in order to restore American power and win the war on terror. In a time of increasing global threats and instability, EXCEPTIONAL will explain why American leadership is indispensable and detail what must be done to defend America’s freedom and security. EXCEPTIONAL is scheduled for publication on September 1, 2015.

“America is the exceptional nation – our accomplishments for the good of all mankind are unmatched by any other nation in history,” said Liz Cheney. “It was American power that was indispensable in the defeat of Nazi fascism and Soviet communism in the last century. It is American power that will defeat militant Islam in this century.”

For nearly 70 years, American presidents – Republican and Democrat – believed in and defended American power and global leadership. “Unfortunately, as we face the clear and present danger of a rapidly growing terrorist threat,” said former Vice President Cheney, “President Obama has significantly diminished our power, abandoned America’s allies and emboldened our enemies. Reversing course on his devastating policies must be the top priority for America’s next president.”

“At this time of increased peril, EXCEPTIONAL is a must-read for those of us who have grave concerns for the future of our country and the world.” added Louise Burke.

World publishing rights in all formats of the book were acquired by Louise Burke from Terry O’Donnell of Williams & Connolly, who represented the authors. The book will also be published as an audio book by Simon & Schuster Audio, read by the authors. Mitchell Ivers, who edited the Vice President’s memoir, In My Time, will edit the book.
