We'd definitely be curious to see what kind of advice she finds valuable!

Katie Couric has announced that she plans to release her first book in April, called The Best Advice I Ever Got. Lessons From Extraordinary Lives, which she describes as a resource on "how to find passion in your work."

According to the news anchor, she decided to compile the novel after giving the graduation address at Case-Western Reserve University in Cleveland, and gathered insight from people like filmmaker Ken Burns, author Joyce Carol Oates, Chelsea Handler, baseball player Alex Rodriguez, and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright!

She explains:

"I started to think it might be nice to cast a wider net, to reach out to a host of accomplished people in various fields. I know there are a lot of books out there with different pieces of advice, but I don't know if there is anything quite like this out there. Some [essays] are maybe four or five pages long. Some are maybe two lines. I'm going to be out there selling; I'll be on Des Moines Tonight; I'll be everywhere because I want the book to do well to raise money for the scholarships. I don't really consider this my book. It's a collection, and I'm sort of the overseer. I hope one day I will have the time and the self-discipline to write a book, because I think my life has been far more interesting than I ever anticipated and certainly has had all sorts of good and bad things transpire."

Sounds like such a nice compilation! And for such a good cause, too!

Job well done! We'll definitely want to pick ourselves up a copy!

Thoughts??

    Wow that's kind of annoying. Shouldn't she be talking to Derek Jeter and not A-roid?
