News came out this week on Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s latest book, due out in the fall.
Here are some additional details the governor provided to The Advocate on what the book will cover and how it relates to his time leading Louisiana:
Bobby Jindal American Will
“As governor, I’ve come to realize how important every day is, and every decision is. Any student of American history will draw the same conclusion — leadership matters. Working every day to aggressively recruit companies to grow our economy in Louisiana has paid off, but only because we made a decision to focus on it relentlessly. The same could be said for reforming our education system in New Orleans after the hurricanes, you have to make a decision and then have the determination to see it through. I’m a bit of a history buff, and this book will focus on the crucial decisions, some of which are little known, that have shaped our nation’s history.”
The 320-page American Will: The Forgotten Choices That Changed Our Republic, is scheduled for an October release. Jindal previously penned a book called Leadership and Crisis that was released in in 2010.
Publisher Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster that specializes in conservative non-fiction, has said American Will will include “dramatic tales that demonstrate the courage, faith, and vision that we need in 2016? — a nod to the presidential race.
Jindal, a Republican who can’t seek re-election because of a term-limit, has been considering a run for president in 2016. He’s expected to make a formal announcement after the legislative session ends next month.
