Kamala's Way Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A revelatory biography of the first Black woman to be elected vice president of the United States.
In Kamala’s Way, longtime Los Angeles Times reporter Dan Morain charts how the daughter of two immigrants born in segregated California became one of this country’s most effective power players. He takes listeners through Harris’ years in the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, explores her audacious embrace of the little-known Barack Obama, and shows the sharp elbows she deployed to make it to the US Senate. He analyses her failure as a presidential candidate and the behind-the-scenes campaign she waged to land the vice president spot. And along the way, Morain paints a vivid picture of her family, values and priorities, as well as the missteps, risks and bold moves she’s made on her way to the top.
Kamala’s Way is a comprehensive account of the vice president-elect and her history-making career.

In some ways the biography shows the weakness of the American system with Harris as a political operative constantly looking for the next move up, attorney general, senate, presidential run, fundraising, sitting on boards, no wonder the day job gets neglected and decisions are made about how they will play out politically.
The author writes with balance but there is a lack of direct interviews with the subject and no photographs (not an issue per se but photographs are referenced in the text e.g of a senators 4 year old daughter giving Joe Biden "a look" so it would have been beneficial to see it).
California politics is covered well.
All in all Harris has an interesting, perhaps inspiring, back story but she is over promoted and just doesn't ring true. An updated biography covering her period as VP would be interesting , just hopefully not into the top job..
but she's no different to the average person in power over people.
