Pivot. Al Franken is funny again. Having worked hard to be a serious Senator for the people of Minnesota since 2009, he’s now able to place humor side by side with self-deprecation and serious topics in his memoir titled, Al Franken, Giant of the Senate. I loved his description of how he struggled to learn the politician’s skill to pivot when asked a question. Franken says he was raised to answer questions asked of him. A politician has to reframe a question or answer the question one wants to answer by pivoting to an area of comfort that’s “on message.” This is a funny and smart book written with clarity and authenticity, and enough humor to bring every reader a laugh or a smile.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
