In “Center of the Storm,” the first book published by WND Books, Harris combines news-making disclosures and practical lessons in a “how-I-did-it” and “you-can-too” guide for holding up amid controversy and coming out on top.
The battle for the White House following the election of Nov. 7, 2000, was one of the biggest political controversies in U.S. history. As the Florida recount unfolded in a maze of bizarre events, Harris was faced with the challenge of a lifetime. What enabled her to maintain her integrity, poise, stick to her guns and hold true to her principles? Here she tells all.
In “Center of the Storm,” Harris discusses the behind-the-scenes negotiations and backroom bartering that everyone suspected, but no one dared to disclose. Through never-before-revealed anecdotes, she explains 12 essential principles that helped her not just survive but thrive. She clearly illustrates how we, too, can learn these skills that help us in times of crises.
