Alberto Gonzales spoke at a book signing event in Portland last week and I got a copy of his new book:
True Faith and Allegiance: A Story of Service and Sacrifice in War and Peace. Although he was a controversial figure as George W. Bush's Attorney General, his story of growing up in poverty in Texas, going to Harvard Law, and working his way to a seat on the Texas Supreme Court before joining the Bush administration is inspiring. I look forward to reading his story in his own words.
He was a thoughtful and articulate speaker and it was interesting to get his big picture view of our recent election.
What books came into your house last week?
