About the Author

In 2012, Ted Cruz was elected the thirty-fourth U.S. Senator from Texas. A passionate fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution, Ted won a decisive victory in both the Republican primary and the general election, despite having never before been elected to office. Before joining the Senate, he was the solicitor general of Texas. Ted and his wife, Heidi, live in his hometown of Houston, Texas, with their two young daughters, Caroline and Catherine.

Rand Paul wants you to know he is Taking a Stand, Scott Walker elaborates he is Unintimidated, Hilary Clinton explains Hard Choices, and Donald Trump shows you How to Get Rich. It’s getting harder and harder to say I don’t believe in the supernatural with all these ghost writers in the autobiography field. That is why A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America shocked me. Not only because the national media’s view of Cruz is debunked, but mainly because Cruz is a rarity in today’s political realm. A man who stands for his beliefs and refuses to just be another cog in the Washington Machine. I would recommend A Time for Truth to anybody who has lost faith in Congress or the America Dream. Cruz proves he is more than Green Eggs and Ham, he is the right man to lead Uncle Sam.

I went through many phases as I read this book…. interesting discovery, boredom and finally cheering for the hero. For example, I learned that my preconceived notion of Ted growing up as a preacher's kid was far from the truth. I discovered that he was devoted to his career to ridiculous levels that might have affected his personal relationships if his wife were not just as devoted to both his and her success. Some of this information actually caused me to waiver in my previous inclination of support, because I saw him as lacking balance in life.

The middle of the book is very slow with extensive details on law school events and legal trials, followed by insight into his various campaigns for office. I assume lawyers will be fascinated with the extent of his success at a young age. This part of the book could be considered an informal and impressive resume', should a president be looking for a Supreme Court justice or Attorney General.

But then came the concise summary of his battles that he has fought since becoming a senator from Texas. His strong will and disregard of the norms that have long been established by the political leadership in the Senate were essential. Most freshmen senators quickly sell their vote for committee assignments and power, but he did not. It has been epic and our nation owes both this man and Mike Lee a debt of gratitude for their tenacious fight on our behalf….for the balance of powers, the Constitution and the rule of law in this country! He prepared a report detailing 76 acts of lawlessness by the administration.

Ted Cruz obtained his B.A degree from Princeton University (1992) and his J.D. from Harvard Law school (1995). He is the first Hispanic (Cuban-American) to serve as U.S. Senator from Texas. Cruz has been a high achiever all his life and has many other firsts under his belt — e.g., the youngest and longest-serving Solicitor General in the history of Texas, etc. At about the same time he was Solicitor General, he was also an adjunct law professor at the University of Texas and taught U.S.Supreme Court litigation. 44-year-old Cruz has been an effective member of the U.S. Senate as well a leader in the Tea Party movement, and not surprisingly, he has plans to run for the GOP nomination in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.

Fortunately, Cruz has written a revealing book that tells much about himself, his hard journey as a Cuban immigrant son, and the source of his political philosophy — but like everything Cruz does, this tome will no doubt get under the skin of liberal (an even some establishment "conservatives" critics) who will attack it for political reasons and its uncompromising honesty.

Despite his ivy league education and high level of constitutional and legal knowledge, this polymath and precocious statesman remains down to earth and close to his humble roots. His honesty and sincerity permeates the book. He dreams of what it could be but does not flinch at telling the truth of government corruption and inanity. He exposes the political corruption in Washington and the double game the politicians play to remain in power and deceive the American people, including the establishment of his own party, an establishment that does not want to rock the political boat and want to continue politics as usual. The book simply is an informative eye-opener!

Many of the presidential candidates for 2016 have books out, which can serve to introduce themselves and/or discuss where they stand on the issues. Such books are typically second rate, but this one is worth reading if you’re undecided as to who the Republican candidate should be and potentially interested in supporting a conservative.

Most of the book is devoted to Cruz’s family background, early years, academic career at Princeton and Harvard Law School, and career thus far (culminating in his election as a US senator in 2012). It’s an authentic account, including triumphs, defeats, and some incidents that must have been a bit embarrassing to disclose. And while it’s true that Cruz has spent most of his life in intellectual endeavors, he does have some administrative experience under his belt – notably as solicitor general for the State of Texas.

The picture that emerges from the book is of a man who is highly intelligent, disciplined, and driven to succeed. Cruz cares about principles and will go to great lengths to uphold them. Not blessed with athletic ability (his story of playing tennis with Chief Justice William Rehnquist and Rehnquist’s other two clerks is hilarious) or a naturally outgoing personality, he has struggled at times with personal relationships.

In political terms, Cruz is a solid conservative. He has often angered other Republicans for refusing to “go along to get along.” Thus, the atmosphere at a Senate Republican lunch on February 11, 2014 turned acrimonious after Cruz objected to a proposal to forego a filibuster of a bill to raise the debt ceiling.
