About the Author
Sarah Stewart Holland is the cohost of Pantsuit Politics. Ten years ago, she left her life as a Capitol Hill staffer behind to move back to her hometown of Paducah, Kentucky, to raise a family. In 2016, she went back to politics in a big way when she knocked on 5,523 doors to win election to the Paducah City Commission, where she served a single term.
Beth Silvers (from the right) is a business coach, speaker, and yoga teacher. After law school, Beth joined a prestigious Cincinnati-based law firm, where she worked in business restructuring during the worst financial crisis of our generation and eventually became an HR executive. Beth now helps businesses and individuals realize their potential. She is a graduate of Leadership Northern Kentucky and has been named an HR GameChanger by Workforce Magazine and one of Cincinnati's Forty Under 40. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Union, Kentucky.--This text refers to the library edition.

While listening I discovered that I’m more socially liberal and mostly politically centrist. But that’s not even important. Sure you can say that politics isn’t your thing and I’ll use the nuance I learned from Beth and Sarah to not judge or shame you for it. Do you have idiot bosses or coworkers? Because this book has helped me at work when I seemingly hit a stalemate with coworkers and superiors. This book has literally retrained my brain on how to focus on the problem and unified ways to solve them.
I cannot recommend it enough. You should listen to the show too :)
If upon reading it, if has not been represented accurately, if it is clearly something different from its description, that is not acceptable to me.
While the two authors are represented as being polar opposites, that is not true.
They both come from a religious perspective. Reviews omit the strong religious bent and the many biblical citations. Nowhere is Christianity referenced in synopses. Yet the book is heavily infused with it.
The clear omission of mention of the book’s constant religious influence can be considered a purposeful and deceptive religious indoctrination which I found inexcusably offensive.
Yes this book may have good reviews. Yes, Donald Trump Jr.’s book may also. I suspect the choir is writing reviews in both cases.
There is no argument, however, this is a religious text. Any suggestion of, “Take what works and leave behind what doesn’t,” is shady excuse for sermonizing inculcation. That this is not even suggested in descriptive blurbs is deceptive.
I've worked very hard in the past few years to embrace both/and thinking, especially with challenging topics like health care, abortion, immigration, gun control, human sexuality, and climate justice. It's possible to hold complicated feelings about these issues that challenge our faith and our politics. But I was missing a guidebook on how to do this well and maintain strong relationships.
Luckily, Sarah and Beth wrote it, at exactly the right time and in the exactly right way. I immediately realized that I was missing nuance in my life.
I received an advanced copy of I Think You're Wrong (But I'm Listening): A Guide to Grace-Filled Political Conversations after hearing about it on the Pantsuit Politics podcast. This book models beautiful how to have these hard conversations. It is a balm to my weary and weathered soul after two hard years of politics in our country and in our church.
I have used the principles in this book with members of my church and on social media with great success. Most effective for me was learning about taking off our team jerseys, finding shared values, and assuming the best in the person with whom you disagree.
I’m mailing a copy of this book to an elected official with which I strongly disagree. I’m hoping it will make as big a difference in his life as it has mine.
I was so excited when Sarah and Beth announced a book that was about guidance that I feel I need when expressing my views and LISTENING to others in a way that is meaningful and open. I love that this book provides insight into listening and considering both sides and that it explores they shades of gray that permeate our world that most people think is black and white.
I did receive an Advance Copy of this book, but I also purchased my own copy because I feel that it belongs on my shelf to remind me that 1) I am not alone in my thoughts and 2) Others deserve for me to hear them out and consider their thoughts and feelings as well.
