Former Rep. Chris Gibson coming out with book

Former 19th Congressional District Rep. Chris Gibson will release a book this October.

The book is titled “Rally Point: Five Tasks to Unite the Country and Revitalize the American Dream,” according to website of the publisher, Twelve. A description of the book from Hachette Book Group says Gibson “looks past the 2016 election, past the finger pointing and conventional political thinking, to focus on clear, primary principles that conservatives must debate and defend to protect the future of America.”

Gibson, a Kinderhook Republican and former colonel in the U.S. Army, decided not to run for a fourth term in Congress last year. He had said he was considering a run for governor but later decided against it. He instead took a job as a visiting professor at Williams College.

Rep. John Faso, R-Kinderhook, won the 19th district race in November 2016.

According to the description of the book from Hachette,  Gibson in his book will provide “incisive and frank analysis of the current political environment, including President Trump, and provides a roadmap based on time-tested Founding principles to help unite our country and revitalize the American Dream.”

Gibson, 52, released his first book, “Reforming the National Security: Decision Making Process at the Civil-Military Nexus,” from Ashgate Publishing Limited in 2008. He waived royalties from the book, according to a financial disclosure statement.

The release date of Rally Point is scheduled for Oct. 3 this year.
