With All Due Respect: Defending America with Grit and Grace Book Review

To be a woman in a man’s world requires one to have a backbone. To be a woman of color in a white man’s world requires one to have much than a backbone.

Nikki Haley was formerly both the Governor of South Carolina and a state legislator. She was also the US Ambassador to the United Nations. In her new book, With All Due Respect: Defending America with Grit and Grace, Governor Haley writes about her perspective on politics, national events, and international events.

Though I don’t agree with her on everything in regards to politics, I admire her ability to be who she is and stand up for what she believes in. She is thriving in a professional world in white men still dominate. Women, especially women of color are still too much in the minority.

My problem, however, is with the book. The first third of the book is too slow for my taste. There were moments when I was ready to throw in the towel. It was in the second third of the book when it finally picked up.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
