In a remarkable journey from being paralyzed at the age of 26 to becoming governor of the state of Texas, Greg Abbott’s new book, Broken But Unbowed: How to Fix a Broken America, is an inspiring and harrowing story. CBC exclusively interviewed Gov. Abbott in the recorded podcast author interview below.
The first part of the book details the life story of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who was paralyzed at age 26 when a tree fell on him while jogging. It’s an emotional rollercoaster detailing the specific events that transpired during and after becoming paralyzed. He would soon recooperate and become an exemplary lawyer, served on the Texas State Supreme Court, became the longest serving Attorney General in US history, and recently won the gubernatorial election to succeed Gov. Rick Perry.
The second part promotes a Convention of the States and offers constitutional amendments suggesting that only the people can force our federal government back to reason.
