Review quote

"In his book, Storming the State House, Speaker Hubbard provides a firsthand report on what it's like to be on the frontlines of politics and policy. This book is a political biography, thriller, novel and how-to guide rolled into one -- a must-read." --Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida 1999-2007 "Speaker of the Alabama State House Mike Hubbard provides an insightful first-hand account of the successful 2010 Republican effort that captured the Alabama state legislature for the GOP for the first time in 136 years. Anyone interested in grassroots politics will enjoy this quick read!" --Karl Rove, former Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff to President George W. Bush "Storming the State House is an authentic, vivid account of how Republicans in Alabama completed their evolution to becoming the majority party in the state with an explosive victory in 2010. If you want to learn what can happen when good people have had enough, grab this book and start reading! If you're tired of politics as usual, get ready to be energized and empowered! Mike Hubbard has hit this one out of the park." --Haley Barbour, Mississippi Governor and Republican National Committee Chair "Mike Hubbard is more than a politician or successful businessman, he is also a fascinating storyteller. In Storming the State House, Hubbard takes the threads and raw material of complicated political history to weave a fascinating story of upheaval and change." --Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Keeping Secret, Driftwood Summer, and Coming Up for Air "You can have Eastwood and Stallone. I'll take Mike Hubbard. Read Storming the State House and he will be your hero, too. This is the story of an ordinary husband and father who saw an entrenched culture of selfish corruption and jumped in "heart-first" to lead a charge against it. With grace and good humor, this book provides proof that one person can indeed change everything." --Andy Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of How Do You Kill 11 Million People?, The Noticer, and The Traveler's Giftshow more
