One goal of this memoir is to inspire people to fight for change It takes what I call the Art of Tough and I've had to do it all my life Senator Barbara Boxer Barbara Boxer has made her mark combining compassionate advocacy with scrappiness in a political c What I enjoyed most about Senator Boxer's book is the history review she provides she's been in there a long time her sense of humor she's uite funny and the behind the scenes picture she paints of life in Congress we're in there with her At different points throughout the book she notes that coalition building is key And she means it after a nasty knock down drag out over one crucial issue or another her nemesis will then become a pal that is until the next battle If I could take her to coffee I would ask her how the hell they make that work year after year It's uite remarkable really given the stakes and emotional nature of some of the issues each side has had to stand up foragainst She shares personal stories of the players who've influenced and encouraged her as well as those who have done everything in their power to see that she fails She's not one to waver and you just can't knock her down This woman is definitely fearless and tough and might toot her horn a bit much about it from time to timeThis book is written from Senator Boxer's uniue political perspective which at times left me hungry for what the other side would have to say about it but she definitely educates the reader on many things taking us deep inside her political world in California and Washington DC She also includes an appendix containing a brief history of the senators who came before her her poetrylyrics and a list of some of her biggest accomplishments in office All in all I thought this was a worthwhile read and walked away with insight as to the happenings in Washington DC and in our recent political history from a woman's point of view It definitely gave me a lot to chew on as we get ready for the big election The book deals with very serious issues but humor is injected for relief throughout Even if she's not your gal or Hillary for that matter she's definitely slanted for a HRC presidency it's an entertaining read that makes you think about who you might want representing you
