Sly James: A Passion For Purpose
By Sly James & Sean Wheelock
In this candid autobiography that seamlessly incorporates political philosophy, the life story of Kansas City, Missouri Mayor Sylvester “Sly” James is told in a fast-paced, entertaining, informative, and authentic style.
Elected to the mayor’s office in 2011 as a political outsider, James immediately made his mark with his unflinching candor. That tone carries over to this book, as James holds nothing back when detailing the life experiences that shape his core values and beliefs.
