THE ART OF TOUGH Fearlessly Facing Politics and Life

by | Read by Barbara Boxer, Kirsten Gillibrand [Foreword]

Biography & Memoir • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

This audiobook memoir details the author's experiences coming of age in California, and then spending more than 30 years in public life, most recently as a U.S. senator from that state. Boxer immediately became one of the most pro-environment, antiwar legislators in Washington, and she continues to be a major voice for progressive causes. The foreword is read by another senator, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, who does a good job setting the tone of the book, reading with enthusiasm and energy. Senator Boxer delivers the rest of the book with a pleasant voice, and she's clearly used to speaking with purpose and clarity. While she needs to vary her voice more and to make sure she doesn't miss emphasizing key words and ideas, overall, Boxer paces herself and reads slowly enough that listeners can ponder her positions.
