Product Details


“This book is Katie—funny, sharp, fearless. I laughed out loud, I teared up, and I got furious. If you’ve ever thought of having lunch with Katie, but you figure that probably won’t work out, read this book—it’s a close second.”—Senator Elizabeth Warren

“[A] tangy tell-all . . . rollicking . . . [Porter] alternates between the witheringly satirical and the breezily self-deprecating (think Erma Bombeck goes to Capitol Hill). . . . Porter’s superpower is her credential as a populist everywoman.”The Washington Post

“Genuinely readable, insightful, revealing, and surprisingly fun . . .[Porter] strips back the artifice and privilege of the job with everyday examples. . . . If she were not a politician, she would have made a good columnist.”Chicago Tribune

“Bracingly honest . . . [I Swear] strays from the norm, exploring normally taboo issues such as the strain her job has put on her finances, her family and her self-image.”Los Angeles Times

“High-octane, no-bullshit . . . The whiteboard represents some of Porter’s greatest political assets—sharp intelligence, ability to break down complex ideas into digestible bites, canny political instincts.”The New Republic

“Just like her whiteboard schoolings of CEOs, this book showcases Katie’s ability to entertain while making the inner workings of Congress more accessible than ever before. You will really chuckle as Katie recounts her unlikely path to rock stardom in the House of Representatives.”—Julia Louis-Dreyfus

“When Representative Katie Porter speaks, I know she knows what she’s talking about and gives it to you straight up. That’s the reason I love her. The fact that this book is helping to explain the mess in politics thrills me no end. If anybody can tell us, it’s Katie. This is a great read.”—Whoopi Goldberg

“In Congress, Katie has proven herself to be a profound storyteller. In this book, she remains a brilliant narrator of the glories and heartaches of trying to do the people’s business in tumultuous times. I love this book. I love Katie’s clarity, her passion, and her humor. I love Katie Porter.”—Jason Alexander
