About the Author
Born in Indiana in 1982, Pete Buttigieg is the US secretary of transportation and former mayor of South Bend, Indiana. A Rhodes Scholar and Navy veteran, Buttigieg was educated at Harvard University and the University of Oxford. He and his husband live in South Bend.
Shedding some personal light, Buttigieg recounts a few memorable lessons he has learned during both his military and political career. For example, he shows how establishing trust was imperative to the success of his life-threatening duties as a military driver in Afghanistan. The author also gives plenty of attention to the gross injustices that have occurred under the Trump administration, many of which serve as cases in point for why our trust in government has eroded so much.... An eloquent call to action for socially conscious citizens to get involved in restoring essential networks of trust.--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
The book offers further proof, were it needed, that the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, also a former presidential candidate, has the most interesting political mind since Barack Obama.--Charles Kaiser "The Guardian"

Praise for Pete Buttigieg's Shortest Way Home:

"The best American political autobiography since Barack Obama's Dreams from My Father." --Charles Kaiser, Guardian

"Buttigieg's stirring, honest, and often beautiful book is . . . an argument for what it means to answer a calling, and why it's important to ask, again and again, 'what each of us owes to the country.'" --Jill Lepore, The New Yorker

"Combining candor and compassion with a brilliant understanding of how government can be more effective. . . [Pete Buttigieg's] work is an important entry in the American political tradition for the twenty-first century." --Walter Isaacson
