New York, NY (June 28, 2011) – Louise Burke, Executive Vice President and Publisher, announced today
that Threshold Editions will publish WHO IS HERMAN CAIN?, an illuminating memoir by Republican
Presidential candidate Herman Cain. Cain previously served as President and CEO of the National
Restaurant Association. The Association represents an industry employing nearly 13 million people in
960,000 locations with sales around $600 billion – making the restaurant industry the largest employer
in America today.

The recent Republican debate in New Hampshire introduced Herman Cain as a Presidential candidate,
yet little is known about his impressive background. A proud “outsider” in the political arena, Cain
created his name in corporate America rather than on Capitol Hill, through four decades spent
revitalizing businesses in the private sector. 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.”

World rights were acquired from Frank Breeden at Premiere Authors. Threshold Editions will publish
WHO IS HERMAN CAIN? in hardcover in October 2011.
