This book gives you the background on Nikki Haley, and how she was shaped to be the person she's become. How many twelve year olds have a knowledge of state tax codes? How many politicians have run for office - successfully - on a shoestring budget because they listened and followed through in their actions? Her upbringing was remarkable in many respects.
This was a very interesting and eye-opening book. After I read it I immediately wanted to support her for a higher office - like the Presidency.
I highly recommend this book. We need more common sense people like Haley in our government.
Haley tells her life story with the proper mix of humility and pride, and provides more detail on her policies and political work that I find in most political autobiographies. She treats her enemies with respect (more than they showed her, certainly), and permits the researcher to easily verify the truth of what she writes. This book would make an excellent supplemental text for my college course on State and Local Politics.
She did state that running for governor was the last race she'd run.....
