From day one of the BP oil spill, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal acted as a leader in a crisis should: quickly and decisively—providing a stark contrast to President Obama, who dithered and bogged down the containment process with needless bureaucracy. In his new book, Leadership in Crisis, Jindal reveals the extent of the Obama administration’s incompetence during the oil spill, and shows why common sense conservative solutions are exactly what we need to solve all of our nation’s biggest problems. Tackling everything from Obamacare and the economy to environmental and energy issues, Jindal presents his own solutions to today’s most pressing problems—and proves why the principles of limited government and conservative leadership are the key to getting America back on her feet. Blending Jindal's unique personal story with the current events of today, Leadership in Crisis reminds us how a true leader should act and reveals how we can restore America to greatness through the timeless principles put forth by our Founding Fathers and the Constitution.

The first and hopefully not the last book by America's most competent governor, who hopefully will be a future president. Read full review
