"The campaign said, 'Right on. Good. You're showing your independence. This is what America needs to see and it was a good interview,'" Palin said. "And of course I'm thinking, if you thought that was a good interview, I don't know what a bad interview is because I knew it was a bad interview."
In the book, Palin reportedly compares Gibson to a disapproving principal who "peered skeptically" at her during their interview. She writes that he did not seem interested in "substantive issues."
But not all of the book is about her political campaign. The AP reports that the book, described as having a "folksy" and "homespun" tone, also discusses her upbringing in Alaska and when she met her husband, Todd Palin, in 1982.
Palin's book tour is set to criss-cross the nation's heartland, avoiding major cities and hitting lots of political battlegrounds.
