Herman Cain Will Publish an Autobiography in October

Presidential candidates like autobiographies. President Obama had Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope; Mitt Romney had No Apology: The Case for American Greatness; Tim Pawlenty had Courage to Stand.

In October, Herman Cain will have his own. Simon & Schuster announced today that, on Oct. 4, it will publish Who Is Herman Cain?

The book will focus on Cain's life story. From the Simon & Schuster press release:

... WHO IS HERMAN CAIN? will highlight Cain's lifetime of accomplishments that include working as a mathematician for the Department of Navy, hosting an eponymous radio show, and most notably, becoming the turnaround CEO of the Godfather's Pizza chain. More than simply an account of professional success, this memoir will also illustrate the central role of faith and family in his life. As a father and grandfather, Herman Cain is acutely aware of the nation's future and wants to ensure the brightest opportunities possible for generations to come.

"I prefer not to see my life as a series of events, but instead, as the unfolding of a story. Like all stories, mine is filled with both obstacles and triumphs. But throughout it all, I have known that with a belief in God, a belief in yourself and a belief in the greatest country in the world, anything is possible," Cain said. "Win-win relationships are what you look for in business and that is what I look forward to having with Threshold Editions."

Said Louise Burke, "With the 2012 election season fully underway, we are thrilled to provide the untold story of one of the campaign's most compelling candidates. Campaign or not, Herman Cain's life story is a rich illustration of the American Dream realized and is a tale well-worth telling."
