Christine Pelosi has written a primer on How To Run. (Also, on how NOT to run, when that's the right thing to do.) She's got the background and experience to know the lessons of how to go about running for office, the first-hand experience of training people to do it, and a wealth of voices who back up her practical advice with their first-hand stories of why they ran and what they learned. Practical. Solid. Essential for the first-time campaigner, the twenty-year incumbent, the journalist, and the woman on the street who wants to get an understanding of How It All Works.

This, to me, was more about the authors own experience working on campaigns and her mothers campaign. I read the entire thing and found it rather useless. I wish I could review it better but it is not as good as many of the other books out there. I only read it further because I wanted to see if I was missing something or if the beef would be further down the road; nothing. I am far from a fan of Nancy Pelosi but I thought her daughter would step away from her mother. Alas, all she did was talk about her mother, her experiences and far fetched ideas for a campaign.

I will say this...it is a very Progressive book, so if you're a Liberal Democrat, Conservative Republican or a true Independent, this book really isn't for you. It's typical college rhetoric perfect for the progressive candidate.
