Governor Parson Announces Forthcoming Book No Turnin' Back

NOVEMBER 3, 2023

 — Today, Governor Mike Parson announced that a forthcoming book about his life titled No Turnin' Back will be released March 2024. The commemorative biography will detail the life of Michael L. Parson, Missouri's 57th Governor nicknamed "G57." More information can be found at

"While this book may be a biography of my life, it isn't just about me. The purpose is to highlight our love for this state and its people and that while Teresa and I have had the opportunity of a lifetime to serve as Missouri's Governor and First Lady, our story, that started from humble beginnings, is similar to the stories of many Missouri families," Governor Parson said. "No Turnin' Back will show that Teresa and I have truly lived our American Dream, one of faith, family, and patriotic service. Throughout our lives, whenever we stood at the crossroads, we moved forward with Missouri grit and determination because, in life, there is no turnin' back." 

No Turnin' Back will focus on the made-in-America story of Michael L. Parson and his journey from meager beginnings in small town Wheatland, Missouri, to the highest political office in the state of Missouri. The 6"x9" hardcover book will contain over 300 pages of text and photos – all color. 

Net earnings from the sale of No Turnin' Back will go to the Moving Missouri Forward Foundation, a nonprofit that supports Jobs for America's Graduates–Missouri, children with special needs, and other programs focused on children across Missouri. 

While No Turnin' Back will not officially be released until March 2024, interested readers can find out more information now by visiting

Neither Governor Parson nor First Lady Teresa Parson will receive any personal financial benefit from the sales of No Turnin' Back.
