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.

Gripping with heart

Gripping and informative insight into Kamala's personal and professional journey via the American legal and political systems. Reads like a manifesto from the heart. A setting of intention.

An insight into the woman behind being VP

A heartwarming story of one woman's ambition that shaped and led her to become the most powerful woman in the world. Kamala bought her story to life with a tale of humour, determination and frustration. A great insight.

Amazing story, thoughtfully told. Inspirational.

Amazing story, thoughtfully told. a call to question, a call to care, a call to arms.

A frank and honest portrayal of her experience at the coal face of the American judicial system. incredibly inspirational. it had me laughing out loud at some points and crying at others. it's left me with a hunger to help more in my daily life; to quote Kamala "let us not throw up ours hands, when we can roll up our sleeves". Go help change the world for the better! But first- read this book!

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.

Personal, authentic and inspiring

i wasn't sure what to expect from the book when i bought it. 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.
