Availability: Ready to download

Harold Ford Jr. has long distinguished himself as a charismatic, results-oriented politician with fresh ideas. His career began at age 26 after he won his father’s Congressional seat, serving his Tennessee district for ten years. He stepped into the national spotlight with his electric keynote at the 2000 Democratic National Convention, and in 2006 his reputation was furth Harold Ford Jr. has long distinguished himself as a charismatic, results-oriented politician with fresh ideas. His career began at age 26 after he won his father’s Congressional seat, serving his Tennessee district for ten years. He stepped into the national spotlight with his electric keynote at the 2000 Democratic National Convention, and in 2006 his reputation was further shaped during the closest Senate race in Tennessee’s history, which he lost. Ford feels passionately that our country’s best days are ahead, and in More Davids Than Goliaths, he presents his mission statement for America. Reflecting on what he’s learned from his extended political family, the slings and arrows of the campaign trail, and those across our nation who inspire him, More Davids Than Goliaths explains Ford’s conviction, “At its best, leadership in government can solve, inspire, and heal.” Along the way, Ford reminds us that in America, there are more Davids than Goliaths, more solutions than problems, more that unites us than divides us.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A fascinating look into a unique political life. Shows a lot about Tennessee and US politics that probably still rings true today. Wish Mr. Ford and his family well, but also wish he was still involved in the political arena in Tennessee. Highly recommend.

    Picked this up in the Shanghai train station for 30 yuan. Crazy! Very much a political bio... by a person who has only had politics for his life. A far cry from Dreams of my Father, many of the same themes but much less soul-searching involved. Having worked for his campaign, it was interesting to read his description of it. He writes just like he talks on TV. It made me happy to see this in China, and see my home town mentioned prominently (in both a very good way and in a flippant way).

This is clearly an election cycle -type political campaign book, but with no campaign in site. ''To this day I have never taken an illegal drug''. Very much politicalese language. But, it had nice moments and his choice in vocabulary often made me feel at home ''collard greens'' and such.

    I'm in love with Harold Ford Jr., but something about this book kind of grated on my nerves. Overall though, he has a postive message.

    I like Harold Ford, heard him speak when he was a young Congressman and he is someone I think I could vote for in a national election. I like his Blue Dog roots.
