Election day is over. Now what?

Still have Tuesday’s election on the brain?

We do too, so we’re reaching for our latest publication: Jim Hunt: A Biography by Gary Pearce. Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, you’ll enjoy this book. What’s not to like about a farm boy from rural North Carolina who grew up to become the state’s longest-serving governor? What’s not inspiring about a man who lost a nasty, dirty-tricks U.S. Senate race, only to return home and win two more gubernatorial elections? And while he was at it, he founded Smart Start–a youth education program–and helped North Carolina’s public schools improve their test scores more than any other state throughout the 1990s, among other accomplishments.

And you just can’t go wrong with an author like Gary Pearce, who has worked with Gov. Hunt since his first campaign in 1975. “Pearce’s good storytelling skills make for a good read as he explains how and why Hunt became the most successful North Carolina politician of all time,” says D. G. Martin, host of UNC-TV’s North Carolina Bookwatch. Want proof? We’ve got an excerpt just for you:
