Arlington, Va. - First-time author Gary Shapiro,
president/CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), has a best seller.

His book that debuted during
International CES,
The
Comeback: How Innovation Will Restore the American Dream
(Beaufort
Books) appeared as No. 7 on the New
York Times
Bestseller List during its inaugural release week.

 The Comeback has
also been a bestseller at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com, and it has been on
the Publishers
Weekly
, USA
Today Money, Wall Street Journal
and Washington Post bestsellers lists.

During CES Federal
Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski acknowledged The Comeback's
availability as an ebook and called this year's CES "one of the most elaborate
book-launch parties in American history."

In The
Comeback,
Shapiro outlines how the federal government has lost its
way, and, in a critique of Washington, provides readers a blueprint to restore
the American dream.

"It is an honor to make the New York Times bestseller list, but
I believe this achievement reflects that Americans are frustrated with our
economic situation and are hungry for decisive action," Shapiro said in a
statement. "My hope is that the positive feedback from readers and reviewers on
the need for a national strategic plan and specific ideas presented in The Comeback
will translate into action and an innovation-focused national agenda."

The
Comeback
features a preface by innovator Mark Cuban and has been
praised by Steve
Forbes
, president and CEO of Forbes, Alan Mulally, CEO, Ford Motor Company, Ivan Seidenberg, chairman and CEO, Verizon Communications; Congressman Darrell Issa
(R-CA)
, Chairman, House Government
Oversight and Reform Committee and Grover
Norquist, president, Americans for Tax Reform.
