      My full review, as well as my other thoughts on reading, can be found on my blog.An engaging memoir from the junior U.S Senator for California, The Truths We Hold sketches the author s early life, political career, and 2020 campaign platform Over the course of ten short chapters Kamala Harris alternates between recounting her personal history and outlining her vision for the nation the daughter of an Indian mother and Jamaican father, Harris positions herself as a progressive liberal capa [...]

      It is difficult to critique political memoirs without seeming to be critical the high minded ideals these writers espouse Kamala Harris appears outside the norm for the kind of Washington politician we ve put up with these past twenty years Formerly Attorney General of California, she had to find solutions to big thorny problems that plagued governance of that state If she didn t solve the problems for all time, she always came down fighting for the side of individuals against corporate ent It i [...]

      Pleased to be finishing this one on MLK day and the day Harris announced her candidacy This was an interesting read, a little slow in the middle The first and last chapters were my favorites, showcasing her origins and her exhortations for the future It gave me that little extra insight into a potential when I started it candidate that I was looking for The threshold question I m holding for any candidate in the current cycle, beyond the basics of whether I find their values and track reco Pleas [...]

      Believing that Ms Harris will be announcing her run for President, I wanted to learn about her I always try to go to the source whenever possible, so I figured this would be a great place to start The book is interesting, and my overwhelming thought upon finishing it If anyone wants to know what her platform would be, it s here Some things are highlighted than others, but it s all here her priorities, why, some of the things she has done, etc So for anyone wanting informat Believing that Ms Harr [...]

      I have followed Kamala Harris career since she was the District Attorney of San Francisco When she was Attorney General of California, I impressed with her prosecution of the banks during the mortgage crisis She has done a good job as Senator representing California.The book is well written Harris reveals her early life and career She also points out that she was tossed into the civil rights problems from the beginning because her mother is a Tamil Indian and her father is a black and both I hav [...]

      Kamala Harris is a badass While I am from CA originally, I currently live and vote in Texas, so sadly she is not my senator However, I ve taken notice of her over the last two years as she has had greater presence on the national stage fighting for human rights, social justice, and environmental responsibility I enjoyed learning about her life, family, career, and political platform She is one I will be watching as the field of democratic candidates takes shape for 2020.
