Staff Reviews


"For me, Ann Richards was Texas politics. I was born and raised here,
the child of Democrats in a state leaving the party of LBJ in droves for
the party of Nixon and Reagan. I’ve read a lot of history and political biography. The description
“page turner” is not often applicable. Jan Reid’s biography of Ann
Richards is exactly that. From start to finish, it’s a compelling read. Let The People In
is a vibrant, full palette portrait of the most important woman in the
history of Texas politics. The Lone Star State has produced more than
its fair share of colorful and influential political figures. This fully
framed and unflinching portrait of Ann Richards’ life tells the
remarkable story of how she earned her place among those colorful,
influential folks. I loved this story of Ann. She never chose between her family and her
political career. She chose to have both. She did not always manage it
perfectly. She was a lot of things to a lot of people. Wife, Mother,
Feminist, Friend and Politician, in this book Ann Richards the whole
human gets uncovered. It’s not always pretty. It’s never boring. You
won’t want to put it down."

“Let the People In is a rich, engaging look at one of the most exciting political figures of the last 40 years. Reid's biography captures the way Ann Richards thrilled, frustrated, and surprised people across the country again and again. In addition to divulging some of the inner workings of politics in Texas and Washington, Reid provides an in-depth look at Austin in its most formative decades. A great history, a great story, and a great read.”
