Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Senator Tammy Duckworth's audiobook bucks the trend of the typical politician's memoir; she's not just engaging, she conveys her life experiences in a compelling narrative and an authentic performance. Starting with her tumultuous childhood, she describes moving with her family to live with her father, a veteran who struggled to find himself after the service. Later after entering military service herself, Duckworth had to fight to earn her spot in the flight training program. She does not shy away from the shocking moments when she is shot down during a routine mission and when she learns how to "own the suck" during her long rehabilitation after a double leg amputation. Throughout, Duckworth is direct and real, and immensely enjoyable. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
