Before reading this book, I knew very little about Kamala Harris. I had seen her a couple of times on TV since she was elected as a U.S. senator from California. My daughter, who lived in California for a number of years while Ms. Harris held several governmental positions there, spoke highly of her. She has an amazing life story and she presents a lot of well thought-out progressive viewpoints on a variety of subjects. The book is refreshing in that almost everything she writes about is stated in a very positive and upbeat manner, and she spends very little time criticizing the positions of other politicians. Having now read her book, I am convinced that she is a very viable candidate to be the next president.
