Best Seller TV’s September programming features former New York Governor & author, David A. Paterson, talking about anecdotes during his time in & out of office

Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV,  is announcing a new episode in September, featuring former New York Governor & author, David A. Paterson, talking about his book, Black, Blind, and In Charge.

David A. Paterson, author of Black, Blind, and In Charge, recounts memorable anecdotes from his time as the 55th Governor of the state of New York, after succeeding Eliot Spitzer, as well as after leaving office. He wrote the book to tell stories he thought were particularly important for everyone to understand the intricacies of serving as the governor of a state, especially with a legal disability.

The book also touts some lessons he learned along the way, particularly how running for office is like being a small business owner. In the book, Paterson recalls his transition from Lieutenant Governor to Governor, after the resignation of Eliot Spitzer. Even before he was sworn in, the slowly became aware of the crisis that awaited him, including a $40 billion debt. Paterson says that one thing he would do differently if given the chance would be to clean-house and carry on with people who were about his mission.

However, one thing he is proud of accomplishing was that when he felt something was right, he didn’t look at the political ramifications. Doing what was right was his only motivation. While Paterson says he wouldn’t run for office again because of the “wear and tear,” he would love to continue serving people in an advisory capacity.

By writing this book, Paterson wants readers to understand their capacity to achieve is greater than they think it is. His lesson from writing the book was “I should have been more emotionally and substantively more prepared than I was” to serve as Governor.

All episodes of Best Seller TV air on C-Suite TV and are hosted by TV personality, Taryn Winter Brill.

Best-selling author, speaker, and former Fortune 100 CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett created Best Seller TV to give top-tier business authors a forum for sharing thought-provoking insights, in-depth business analysis, and their compelling personal narratives.

“It was an honor to have former Governor Paterson on our show to talk about the commitment, organization and compassion it takes to lead a state,” Hayzlett said. “We always wonder what happens behind the scenes, what politicians go through every day to serve their constituents and I think this book provides that insight and then some.”
