PRAISE FOR THE ART OF TOUGH
“Anyone who thinks that Washington can't be understood, has no great hearts, and is not crucial to our daily lives will be turned around on all counts by Barbara Boxer's irresistible story of her more than four decades there. Read this as a bridge into the coming political year, and you won't just vote, you'll fight to vote."
“In more than 40 years in government, Barbara Boxer has truly mastered the ‘Art of Tough.’ Her life and work are an inspiration to politicians everywhere, both real and completely fake.”
“This book offers invaluable lessons about politics and life from one of the strongest progressive voices of the U.S. Senate. Barbara Boxer’s life lessons are tried and true. They are pearls of wisdom her readers can live by.”
“For decades I have worked with Barbara Boxer on issues that have touched our hearts and our lives. She is a woman of her word and she is one of the most generous leaders I have ever met in politics."
"When you read Barbara's words, you realize how important it is to be strong in the face of overwhelming powers. Her book will inspire all of us to be fearless in our pursuits, our convictions, and our lives."
“It takes a true warrior to fight against the biggest polluters who would degrade our environment. That warrior is Barbara Boxer- who has been my partner for years in protecting our oceans so that their beauty remains for future generations.”
“From being told in the early sixties that “Women aren’t stockbrokers” to five terms in the House and four terms in the United States Senate, Senator Barbara Boxer’s memoir is the story of a woman who found her calling. My favorite quote is: “So I ran.” Even if you differ with Senator Boxer politically, The Art Of Tough educates and entertains. It’s a “must read.”’
“Drawing on her decades of effective, principled advocacy of liberal ideals, Barbara Boxer provides a valuable description of how the legislative process works at its best. She weaves the political, official, and personal aspects of the job into a readable, instructive narrative of how democracy can be practiced.”
