The Courage to Survive book. Love him or hate him, Dennis Kucinich took hard hits through out his life and kept bouncing back and not complaining. It is a story of hard work and over coming hardship

The Courage to Survive book. Destined to be one of most important and talked-about books. It is a story of hard work and over coming hardship. He was my former mayor and I now learned we grew up on the same side of town as I did. Many places I knew growing up are mentioned in the book: St. Vidas, Holy Name, Central Catholic, Tourney Tech, Miles Park Library, The Gully that ran from Harvard to the Canal, and Forest Hills.

I was sitting on the front row at The Tonight Show in September (2007), when Dennis Kucinich was there to promote his book. Jay Leno said that he had read the book and loved it, and Jay’s expression reflected a deep and uncharacteristic reverence. At the time, that seemed odd to me. But now that I have read the book, I completely understand the look on Leno’s face.

Dennis will have to write a Courage to Survive II that covers his days as a City Councilman, Mayor, his refusal to sell the city's low-cost electrical system to an Enron-style takeover and the decade-plus he was out of politics. Words Fail Me. Published by Thriftbooks. Though Dennis Kucinich is running for President, very little of this autobiography is about politics. It's the story of how life's circumstances shaped one man's values and forged his resolve that he could do anything and that nothing is impossible.

org: This book is an odd campaign book - it's a personal biography focusing on Kucinich's early life. How this applies to the presidential race is unclear here to us at OnTheIssues. We assume this book is written for Kucinich's hard-core fans, known as Kucitizens, who just want to know more about his upbringing and personal background.

Out of respect for the success, at least compared to expectations, of the Sanders insurgency, I read Bernie's
"Our Revolution" and his 1996 "Outsider in the House", which was republished as "Outsider in the White
House". I followed up with Paul Wellstone's "Conscience of a Liberal", which was better written. But the
best of all was Dennis Kucinich's "The Courage to Survive". While I do not agree with the congressman
from Ohio on much, I have always found him to be a captivating speaker. In the 2003-4 debates when
Al Sharpton was putting on his show and Howard Dean was running as an outsider, I thought, "No.
Bernie, the mayor of Burlington, is the genuine outsider in Vermont. Dean is still basically an insider
hack, but he was pretty good at grasping what changed between 2000 and 2004". But Kucinich
in 2003-4, that was a guy who, even though I don't agree with him, actually believed what he was
saying. As a writer, he's even better than he is as a speaker. Fortunately for me, the book has
little to do with politics as such. It's about growing up and a lot of it is actually Catholic and inspired
by his experience with wonderful teaching nuns, well before Vatican II so it's actually similar
to the experience of Pat Buchanan in some ways, though Kucinich took his politics in the
opposite direction. His stories of becoming a local politician in Cleveland and gaining
support at the grassroots level through hard work, listening and going door to door
is wonderful.

Something about this neighborhood felt like home to me-the agony that working people tuck away in their guts,
the awareness of machines smashing mens' bodies, enraging their spirits but leaving them partially deaf and dumb to
the punctuations of gun shots, tires screaming on the pavement, fire engines shrieking at the pyres of mom and pop
delicatessens' steam shovels yawning at the rubble of residences cleared for freeway and neglect. This neighborhood
was dying. In its final hours, it had been drawn and quartered by freeway developers, bound up in ribbons of abandoned
railroad tracks and dumped on the banks of the fetid, terra cotta Cuyahoga River, which was brimming with rats, debris
and industrial chemicals that burned the eyes and caught in the throat.
Yes, I thought, as I walked door to door, this area had been given up for dead. When this neighborhood of poor and working
people died it could be anointed in sulphur dioxide and fly ash, laid out underneath a panorama of throbbing smokestacks and
dozens of inspiring steeples trembling with dirges in thirty languages. Then insecure pensioners, young Catholic grandparents
and hungry widows could pray the Rosary every evening for the repose of its soul. This is what I remember the most: walking
the Southside in the early summer evenings, listening to the radio Rosary drifting from behind locked screens. The silhouette
of the old people against their lamps, crossing themselves with arthritic fingers, praying for peace, for the faithful departed,
for the strength to endure deferred hopes; praying that family, church, neighborhood and life itself would retreat no more
and would stand still in time, preserved and safe, a dream-sculpted freeze.
They knew their neighborhood was dying, but they did not want it to happen.

One doesn't have to agree to admire this as a good approach to politics.

Dennis Kucinich is one of my very few heroes. Reading his biography was stunning. A very difficult childhood w/countless moves, homelessness, and the more. You bet this man survived - and more. Though no one asks for these types of experiences, every one of them contributed to the character of this man who realized early on that what he wanted to do most was serve People. He has never deviated from his ethics and morality. I sincerely wish he'd run for the Presidency again in 2016. We desperately need men of his caliber. Dennis, you're a Keeper and a Treasure!

Everyone who knows anything about Kucinich knows he had a tough upbringing but I had no idea how tough it really was until I read this book.
Many other Presidential candidates were born into privileged backgrounds and many are millionaires. They may say they understand what ordinary Americans go through, but they haven't lived it. When Kucinich says it, it's true.
Not only is Dennis an electrifying public speaker, he is also a great writer. It is hard to put the book down once you start reading it, until you've finished it.
Overall, the book is very inspiring and some parts will bring you to tears.
No wonder Kucinich is never fazed when someone calls him a longshot. When you spend a portion of your youth living in cars in some of Cleveland's worst neighborhoods, you already know what a longshot is. When your Mother gets sick and you and your siblings are whisked away to an orphanage and separated, not knowing whether the family will ever be reunited, you understand what it's like to be a longshot.
The book is highly recommended to anyone. Buy a few extra copies as XMAS gifts, a library donation(designate it as a Memorial to someone) or any other ideas you come up with.
Humanity is at a crossroads. We need someone of Kucinich's wisdom and character to become president to restore what remains of our democracry.
