True Faith and Allegiance by Alberto Gonzales

This is an autobiography of the first Hispanic Attorney General of The United States.

It is a thick book full of personal stories that you would expect in a political player surrounded by one of the most horrific events in this country.

Gonzales takes you back to his roots and how he joined the ranks of the Texas lawyers - up to Texas Supreme Court. But the real purpose of reading this book is for insight into his time with the Bush administration, right?

I liked reading his perspective on events and his explanation for why he made the decisions and recommendations that he did.

He added just the right amount of detail to what his work was like and how it affected his personal/home life.

Whether you agreed with him or not, this is a great book to read if you're looking for insight. I didn't think it read too partisan (other than his support of his friend President Bush).

He made some very controversial calls and what appeared to be politically motivated decisions during his tenure. So this book helps provide his side of the story and it should be read by anyone interested in how the political realm of D.C. operates.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Thomas Nelson Publishing.
