Shortest Way Home: One Mayor's Challenge and a Model for America's Future

Shortest Way Home: One Mayor’s Challenge and a Model for America’s Future by Pete Buttigieg

My rating: 5/5

Loved it. Tells a good & inspirational story. I was fascinated by his choices and growth through life, from being a superstar academic to his choice to switch from corporate work over to politics, to his commitment to counter the pattern of privilege and enter into the US armed forces. In addition to a wide range of fascinating political insights, it’s a very personal book. I teared up at certain points, like his wedding.

I don’t know if Mr. Buttigieg is going to be my choice for President in the primaries, but I do feel that he’s got a good grasp of the challenges and the opportunities in America, and I would definitely trust him with the Oval Office.
