Publishing a book is pretty much a rite of passage for would-be presidential candidates, and Gov. Bobby Jindal will be coming out with his second book in October. American Will: The Forgotten Choices that Changed Our Republic is being published by Threshold Editions, a division of Simon & Schuster that specializes in books by conservative thinkers (Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck among them).
Besides his frequent op-ed pieces for national publications, American Will will be Jindal's first publication since Leadership and Crisis, his 2010 book that covered Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil disaster. And though Jindal continues to insist he hasn't decided whether to run for president, press materials for the new book say it will be filled with "tales that demonstrate the courage, faith and vision that we need in 2016."
Jindal's biography on the Simon & Schuster website also notes, "He has made education and tax reforms top priorities of his tenure in office."
