I really enjoyed this book. It was a look at a life I had not considered. To run for a position means that one’s whole life is under scrutiny, even one’s personal life. Every decision, every moment of life can be called into question. It is not just about having your resume under scrutiny. And in choosing to run, you are choosing to let your life become an open book and be judged, whether you like it or not. Nothing is hidden from the public’s eye. White’s book was a clear look at this life, while providing a satisfying story that I loved reading.
I received this book free from Zondervan for the purpose of this review.
