Few in Congress have accomplished more than David Bonior on behalf of average Americans. Whip is the story of how he did it.
“David Bonior was my mentor when I came to Congress.” — Senator Bernie Sanders
“David Bonior never hesitated to take on the powerful on behalf of the powerless. How did this boy from Detroit grow up to become one of the most progressive legislators Congress has ever seen? Read Eastside Kid and find out.” — Congressman John Lewis
“Whip is an intimate, in-depth look at David Bonior’s path to the Congress, and the battles he waged for working Americans. With the grace of a seminarian, the savvy of a whip, and the compassion and grit of an Eastside kid, David Bonior tells his incredible story with the same passion and conviction that epitomized his tenure in the Congress.
“David is my personal mentor: a paragon of integrity and moral responsibility. He took Newt Gingrich to task time and time again—and he fought for our values by championing a progressive agenda characterized by the defense of unemployment insurance, fair trade, and raising the minimum wage. Whip is a playbook for the progressive agenda, and should be required reading for anyone engaged in the fight for working Americans.” — Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro
