Jennifer Granholm was the governor of Michigan from 2002 to 2010. Those eight years were some of the most turbulent in the history of the state. Governor Granholm led Michigan through a number of factory shut-downs, a serious recession with skyrocketing unemployment, and, of course, the auto bailout in 2008. Governor Granolm and her husband, Dan Mulhern, describe these challenges and much more in their new book, "A Governor’s Story: The Fight for Jobs and America's Economic Future."
"A Governor's Story" describes all aspects of Governor Granholm's tenure: from economic uncertainty to politics' impact on her family life. Gov. Granholm talks about personal life in the governor's mansion, as well as the lessons the authors believe the U.S. should learn from Michigan's economic troubles.
