by | Read by Harold Ford, Jr.

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Former Congressman Harold Ford, Jr.'s, distinctive clipped speech, softened slightly by hints of his native Tennessee, lends the anecdotes in this brief memoir increased intimacy and veracity. His voice conveys the warmth and affection he feels toward his family as he touches briefly on his formative years and on helping with his father's Congressional campaigns. When he recounts the ideals that led him to pursue public service, the reason and practicality that have earned him recognition as a moderate become apparent. His delivery increases in intensity as he describes achievements and frustrations encountered during his career in Washington, reaching its most forceful points as he shares the inside story of the political wrangling he endured in his recent unsuccessful run for the Senate.
