Editorial Reviews

Always fascinating and very funny, Alyssa’s book is full of juicy stories from one of the world’s most glamorous jobs. Mindy Kaling, New York Times bestselling author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) and Why Not Me?
WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? is everything we’ve come to know and love about Alyssa over the decade we worked with her: brilliant, funny, grounded, and inspiring. Anyone who’s interested in politics - especially young people - should read this book. Dan Pfeiffer and Jon Favreau, former communications director and speechwriter for President Barack Obama
I've often wondered how a woman can be so many things wrapped up in one dynamic package. Alyssa is my fairy godmother: she's wise, resourceful, insanely smart, and makes me laugh in a very special way. Her stories - from the front line of the White House to her kitchen - will entertain, inspire, and humor you for a long time to come. Amanda de Cadenet
Few people have had as much access and influence over national events over the last decade as Alyssa Mastromonaco. No matter how serious the crisis or hard the problem, Alyssa took care of it with great skill and professionalism, and even greater humor. This book tells the story of a young woman succeeding under extraordinary circumstances, and throughout it all, never taking herself too seriously. Stephanie Cutter, former senior advisor to President Barack Obama
Alyssa is a force: whip-smart, humble, and funny as hell. Her writing is as fearless as she is. Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO of Girlboss
