Rising to the Challenge

Rising to the Challenge

by Carly Fiorina




The former CEO and bestselling author returns to help conservatives reach a broader audience and unlock the country’s full potential.

Since the 2006 publication of her New York Times bestseller Tough Choices, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina has faced a new round of challenges. She ran for the Senate as a Republican in deep-blue California; battled breast cancer; suffered the loss of a step-daughter; and launched the Unlocking Potential Project, a new grassroots organization.

Now she has a message for those who worry about America’s future: Our wounds are self-inflicted. We have all the resources we need to prosper, but we don’t tap into them. By ignoring conservative principles—or failing to articulate those principles in ways that connect with regular people—Republicans have missed many opportunities to lead.

Fiorina believes that politics, like business, is primarily about people. She shows how conservatives can reach out across the usual barriers of gender, race, income, and party affiliation to craft a message that appeals to a wide range of Americans. Her book will be an important blueprint for conservatives as we approach the critical elections of 2016.
