Summary:
"When Ohio governor John Kasich ran for president, his powerful message of hope and togetherness struck a chord with American voters. In Two Paths: America Divided or United, he carries that message forward by reflecting on the tumultuous 2016 campaign, sharing his concerns for America and his hopes for our future, and sounding a clarion call to reason and purpose, humility and dignity, righteousness and calm" -- provided by publisher.
"When Ohio governor john Kasich began his race for the presidency, he was considered a long shot by the media and the political establishment. Yet his powerful, positive message of hope and inclusion struck a resonant chord with American voters--and in the end he was the last mainstream conservative in what had once been a crowded field of Republican hopefuls. In Two Paths: America Divided or United, the former nine-term congressman offers his reflections from the 2016 campaign and shares with readers his concerns for his fellow Americans and his hopes for our future, sounding a clarion call to reason and purpose, humility and dignity, righteousness and calm. 'The country never looked so grand and magnificent as it did from ten thousand feet,' he writes of his time on the campaign trail, 'and it was always a thrilling, faith-affirming thing to look out the window and see the sun splashing across Bryce Canyon in Utah, or the lights of the New York skyline at night as we flew past the Statue of Liberty, or the glimpse of an open field in the heartland running as far as our eyes could see .... I'd look out and think what an honor it would be to lead this great nation, what a blessing.' To be sure, the full story of the 2016 presidential race will be written over time, but to understand what it was to be on the front lines of one of the most divisive and corrosive campaign battlegrounds in history, readers won't find a richer, more thoughtful firsthand account than this one--a frank, refreshing assessment of the American dynamic and a clear path we might follow toward a more promising tomorrow. As Governor Kasich reminds us in these pages, America is great because America is good--and because Americans have stayed true to who we are: one nation, under God, indivisible."--Jacket.
