reviewed Center of the Storm on
"Hurricane season is usually on the wane by November, but a political storm was unleashed on Florida on Election Day 2000. And in the midst of the turmoil stood Katherine Harris. Her duties as secretary of state and chief elections officer thrust her overnight into the eye of an electorial hurricane of historic dimensions.

In CENTER OF THE STORM, Katherine Harris reflects on the power of twelve basic life principles-habits of the heart, mind, and soul-that saw her through the election crisis and the months that followed." (front flap of book cover)

Though the 2000 election is mentioned, this is not a book about the election. It is rather a discussion of leadership and learning and how one can survive turmoil by knowing oneself and what one believes. Lots of your typical leadership 'advice', but written with an almost narrative style that reflects on life experiences and leaders' lives from whom she learned and thus developed he own principled belief system. Each chapter ends with top ten lists relevant to the princple she's explored in the chapter....I found the book list of some value and will hold onto my copy for awhile. This is not a partisan examination of anything, but a book on leadership that reads well.
