Reviews

"A marvelous retelling of the American story, including the people in Tommy Thompson's life and hometown. When I was the Speaker of the Wisconsin Assembly, he and I were friendly adversaries. He wanted all the votes, but cared about people and focused on the important issues." --Tom Loftus, former U.S. Ambassador to Norway
"Tommy Thompson's journey has been defined by his public service. His passion for making a difference has inspired so many, including me. Everyone would benefit from reading his story, learning from him, and hearing why we need to follow in his footsteps to create better communities, better states, and a better nation." --House Speaker Paul Ryan
