The book begins with Mr Spicer's final days at the White House.
In late July 2017, he was summoned to the Oval Office to be told by Mr Trump the administration was being "killed in the media" and things had to change.
He suggested fellow New Yorker, the fast-talking Anthony Scaramucci, was needed to more aggressively prosecute the President's case and plug the stream of White House leaks.
The next day, Mr Spicer tendered his resignation: "It was time to go."
It's not hard though to detect the glee in Mr Spicer's portrayal of Mr Scaramucci's brief and disastrous reign as communications director.
Mr Scaramucci was out after 10 days. At least Spicer lasted for six months.
Those wanting a tell-all account of life inside the Trump White House will need to wait for another book.
While Mr Spicer is slightly critical of some aspects of the President's behaviour, he clearly still admires the "charismatic but erratic" Commander-in-Chief.
And while Mr Spicer makes some valid points about a media obsessed with "gotcha moments" and "palace intrigue" at the expense of serious policy analysis, much of the book amounts to an extended payback session for journalists simply trying to do their job of sifting through White House fact and fiction.
A friend of mine and a man who has truly seen politics and life as few others ever will, Sean Spicer, has written a great new book, “The Briefing: Politics, the Press and the President.” It is a story told with both heart and knowledge. Really good, go get it!
