There’s been a lot of buzz lately about who might run for president in 2016. It’s still early to speculate too much but there are a lot of questions floating around in the media: Will it be a Clinton v. Bush run? Will Elizabeth Warren change her mind and opt to run? Will Rick Santorum give it another go? Will Chris Christie overcome his scandals and run? So, in order to help the policy wonks learn more about each of the presidential hopefuls, I’ve compiled a list of some of the biggest contenders and the books they have written. The information that they are “known for” comes from Wikipedia (linked in their names) and any book that you buy through this post gives me a small commission, so thanks in advance!
