Where does The Reluctant Republican rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
Like watching a tragic car accident in slow motion, Olschner offers up a her own first-hand account of what happens when a moderate Republican runs for office in the modern era of the GOP. Narrating the book herself, Olschner's writing and southern accent are very engaging.
From the first minute of the book, you can tell that Olschner genuinely cares about our country and is deeply concerned that it is wasting away while the GOP is engaged in bumper-sticker and soundbite politics rather than electing candidates that can make real progress on our financial problems and other issues affecting the nation. Olschner's book is not a sour-grapes screed, but rather a thoughtful autopsy of her experience that tactfully challenges GOP leadership, candidates, and voters to do better. A trial lawyer with 25+ yrs of successfully connecting with juries, and a former professional tennis player, Olschner certainly has the intelligence, tenacity, and experience that we need in our political leaders. Such traits also provide her with credible standing to present her constructive and compelling criticism to the GOP community. A thought provoking book.
