This book was okay. It doesn't shed much light on her policy views. The first 75% or so is about her life before becoming a senator (e.g. growing up, career in law, campaigning for office, etc). The last few chapters talk about her experience as a senator, but it heavily emphasizes bipartisan compromise. I would have liked to learn more about her political vision.

This senator voted for the fast track to allow for the Trans-Pacific Partnership to pass, the endgame in the offshoring of jobs, importing of replacement foreign visa workers, and handing over sovereignty to the multinationals. Klobuchar is a strong supporter of the TPP, and anti-worker! Check out her voting record, before reading this book! Like Bill, Hillary and Chelsea and the present president, she ain't no democrat. I know what a democrat is and these are neocons.
