This is a autobiography/political book by Rep Barbara Lee, a Democrat that represents the Oakland area in CA. She has certainly led an interesting life with many struggles and has endured and has been a successful politician. While I don't agree with some of her politics and how she wants to fix problems, I have to admit that she works hard for her people and causes. The book seems more than a little self serving and certainly anti-Bush. It was written just before the Obama vs McCain election. While she only mentioned McCain a couple times, it was very negative to him, but likewise she only mentioned Obama a couple times too. This is not a kind of get out the vote book. It really was about her and her career. At times an interesting read especially when more on her personally rather than on the politics. As I said she has led a very interesting life.
I have posted it on PBS since there was 1 WL and it is already accepted. I will be getting it in the mail in the next couple of days.
