"Our favorite part is 'dealing with negative smears' -- something she knows a lot about. Because she's been behind the most nasty, dishonest attacks in Kentucky over the past few years."
I recognize all the names who have written positive reviews. They are either neighbors, work for her huband or are associates of Groob.
If you considering a run for office Groob gives you the straight talk and practical advice to make a decision. But reader beware - if you're unsure whether to run prepare to be inspired to take the plunge!
Not only are Groob's stories (and the stories of other women she shares)inspiring, Pink Politics is a practical how-to guide to running a campaign. It's a step-by-step primer that will get any candidate through the day-to-day of a tough campaign.
Groob's practical advice and personal stories will give the tools and motivation to get any woman through a campaign. I'm sure this book will lead to more than one woman running and winning elected office!
