About the book

Will Hurd Pensive

Will draws on his unique experiences in back alleys of dangerous places, boardrooms of international businesses, and the halls of Congress to lay out a detailed plan to “reboot America,” offering a fresh start to a country mired in political divides and internal strife.

Will calls this approach “pragmatic idealism,” a philosophy that can get the leadership of this country back to where most Americans are and inspire Americans to take back their country from the fringes that dominate our politics.

In his book, Will breaks down how pragmatic idealism can transform the five most important challenges of our country:


Restore the Republican party so that it catches up with a changing America


Improve national leadership so that our leaders inspire, not fearmonger


Refocus domestic policy so that it empowers people, not the government


Transform U.S. foreign policy so our enemies fear us and our friends love us


Take advantage of technology before it takes advantage of us

“Life is hard. Life is difficult. Life is going to punch you in the gut. But when you change your attitude, you change your behavior. When your behavior changes, so do your results.” Will Hurd signature in white
