A smart and revealing political memoir from a rising star of the Democratic Party. Barack Obama has called Jason Kander the future of the Democratic Party. A former US Army captain who served in Afghanistan, Kander was the first millennial ever elected to statewide office. Today, he is the founder and president of Let America Vote and a bold new voice in American politics. In Outside the Wire, Jason Kander writes candidly about his life, from joining the military following 9/11, to launching his first political campaign, to becoming the next step in the evolution of the Democratic Party following the 2016 presidential election. Kander’s signature outspoken voice is on full display as he guides readers through his own journey from soldier to politician, detailing—often with a dose of humor—the lessons he has learned along the way.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] magic combination of authenticity, principle, and humor. Kander seems like the rare politician you might actually want to have a beer with; if you can’t, this book is the next best thing.” Kirkus Reviews
“Kander, a post-9/11 veteran, shares his observations about the role of what he calls ‘everyday courage’ in the military, in our daily lives and, yes, in our politics. Written with equal parts humor and humility, Jason and his book are the antidote to the cynicism that pervades our discourse. It’s the rare book that will leave readers across the ideological spectrum optimistic about the future of our country.” Josh Earnest, former White House press secretary
“Jason Kander is in the vanguard of a new generation of public servants working tirelessly to realize the promise of our country for every American. Outside the Wire vividly captures his experience, energy, ideas, and vision for the future of our democracy.” Cory Booker, US senator, D-New Jersey
