Enoughgoes behind the scenes of Gabby and Mark's creation of Americans for Responsible Solutions, an organization dedicated to promoting responsible gun ownership and encouraging lawmakers to find solutions to gun violence, despite their widespread fear of the gun lobby. As gun owners and strong supporters of the Second Amendment, Gabby and Mark offer a bold but sensible path forward, preserving the right to own guns for collection, recreation, and protection while taking common-sense actions to prevent the next Tucson, Aurora, or Newtown. Poll after poll shows that most Americans agree with Gabby and Mark's reasonable proposals.
As the book follows Gabby and Mark from the halls of Congress to communities across the country, it provides an intimate window into the recovery of one of our nation's most inspiring public figures and reveals how she and her husband have taken on the role of co-advocates for one of the defining issues of our time.

"Both an account of Giffords' courageous rehabilitation and ongoing recovery and an urgent plea to make substantive changes in the way the nation addresses the problem of gun violence. . . . Readers unfamiliar with the evolution of the National Rifle Association, its political clout, the way it punishes (and rewards) gun makers and its global reach may find the gun-lobby primer instructive, if not alarming. . . . It's pretty clear that the former astronaut and congresswoman will use every ounce of tenacity they have, and they appear to have plenty, to exert a lasting influence on the national gun-violence debate." * Philadelphia Inquirer *
"A rich read, even if it has an agenda. . . . [Enough] takes the reader inside perhaps the biggest legislative defeat of the Obama era . . . An inspirational tale of survival and recovery." * The Huffington Post *
"Gabby Giffords says, 'Strong women get things done,' and with her new book, she leads by example." * Makers *
"Alternating between a factual argument against gun violence and a scathing indictment of the NRA, former congresswoman Giffords and her husband, retired astronaut Kelly, take a long hard look at the fight to strike a balance between responsible gun ownership and Second Amendment rights. . . . Makes a straightforward yet impassioned argument." * Publisher's Weekly *
