    Everyone knows the first step in your presidential campaign is to write a book. Enter Paul Ryan. The former GOP vice presidential candidate is working on a new tome set to release next year. Ryan, who is so far writing the book himself, is focusing on the theme of American renewal and will offer policy prescriptions to help the Republican Party in the future. The book will also be part autobiographical as it will delve into his childhood in Ohio, his relationship with Jack Kemp, and his time in the House of Representatives.
