A Time for Truth : Reigniting the Promise of America / Ted Cruz / 400 pgs

I actually read Cruz's auto-biography earlier this year, but I wanted to wait until he was out of the race before posting this. I am looking towards reading a Donald Trump book next, and then either a Sanders or Clinton (or both) book later this year. I am going to only post a summary without political commentary.

In his book, Cruz details the lives of both of his parents before Cruz was born. He then moves on to his own childhood. Cruz talks about how he changed his mind from pursuing a career in computer science (the profession of both of his parents) to law when he was in high school. After going to school at Princeton and Harvard, Cruz talks about his early career, his campaigning for George W. Bush in 2000, which is where he met his wife, Heidi, and his time as a solicitor general of Texas. The second half of the book is about his senate campaign in 2012, what he has done in the Senate since he was sworn into office in early 2013, and then ends with his vision for America in the future.
