Praise for The People's Lawyer:
"The People’s Lawyer is a riveting must-read for all Michigan citizens and students of history. Frank Kelley reveals inside stories of political and personal battles in a manner that is at once fun and inspirational, candid and vivid—just like the man himself. In The People’s Lawyer we are a witness to history through the eyes of one of the greatest public servants of all time."
– Jennifer Granholm, 47th governor and 51st attorney general of Michigan
"The People’s Lawyer, the story of Frank Kelley’s life, is a fascinating read. Every young lawyer who reads it can learn from the commitment to the law and to justice of our nation’s longest-serving attorney general. The book is engaging, direct, and honest—just like Frank Kelley. His story shows how a determined public servant, dedicated to the law, can help protect our consumers and help make our world a place that is fairer, with an environment that is cleaner. The People’s Lawyer will inspire lawyers of all ages to engage in some form of public service."
– Senator Carl Levin, longest-serving United States senator from Michigan
