Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Discover Vice President-elect Kamala Harris's New York Times best-selling book about the core truths that unite us and the shared values that will see us into the future.

The daughter of immigrants and civil rights activists, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris was raised in a California community that cared deeply about social justice. As she rose to prominence as a political leader, her experiences would become her guiding light as she grappled with an array of complex issues and learned to bring a voice to the voiceless.

Now, in The Truths We Hold, Harris reckons with the big challenges we face together. Drawing on the hard-won wisdom and insight from her own career and the work of those who have most inspired her, she communicates a vision of shared struggle, shared purpose and shared values as we confront the great work of our day.

Read like a campaign speech

It seemed as though this book was written by someone else or it had the flavour of a long campaign speech. It didn’t come across as personal, just a glossed over, sugar coated version of someone’s experiences but maybe the purpose wasn’t about being personable. It didn’t hold my attention and I didn’t make it past the first chapter.

The woman who made history 2020 election.

Absolutely a must read for everyone to get to know the person behind the headlines. Every word she writes makes a difference and everything she does can be assessed by fact checking. The best choice of Joe Biden, for running together and change domestic and world politics. Such an inspiration. Thanks for this Kamala Harris.

But right from the first chapter i found myself captivated by this deeply personal story. i finished the book feeling hopeful about the future of the USA, we will be fine as long as we have compassionate and competent leaders like Kamala Harris. Recommend this book.
