What makes Bobby run?
In this new, balanced look at Piyush “Bobby” Jindal, political authority Tom Aswell explores the past and record of this polarizing political figure. He covers the Rhodes scholar’s meteoric rise and appointment as secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Human Services at the age of 24, his campaigns and abbreviated terms in Congress, his terms as the first Indian American governor in the US, and his presidential aspirations. Along the way, the author focuses on Jindal’s record on health care, taxes, reform, and more. This illuminating work is the first to examine the entirety of Jindal’s philosophy and career, achievements and failures in the context of national history.

“Aswell . . . nails the hypocrisy in Jindal’s conservatism that he seems to wear loosely for political advantage.”
—Tom Kelly, publisher, Piney Woods Journal
“Aswell is not only a strong voice of sanity and reason in a state that often lacks both; he exposes hard truths about the corruption and misfeasance that is still rife in Louisiana politics. . . . If you want to know what really happened in Louisiana during the Jindal administration, Bobby Jindal: His Destiny and Obsession is the place to start.”
—Bob Mann, Manship Chair in Journalism, Manship School of Mass Communication, LSU
“In this carefully crafted look at Bobby Jindal, Aswell goes well beyond the glossy picture of Bobby Jindal that has been spun by his facile public relations apparatus to reveal an unvarnished picture of the ambitious [man].”
—William B. Brown, former executive editor, Columbus (GA) Ledger-Enquirer and Montgomery (AL) Advertiser
