Overview: Mitt Romney takes a frank and revealing look at what makes Mitt the man tick, portraying him as more human than he often appears to be on the stump: his character and convictions, his words and actions, his flips and his flops, and his triumphs and setbacks. It also attempts to answer the question everyone is asking: Could a faithful Mormon really win his party's nomination and then upset the popular, if now struggling, incumbent president, Barack Obama? Drawing on extensive research amassed over more than two decades, including interviews with people who know Romney best-allies and adversaries alike-this book paints a savvy, textured, and revealing portrait of the candidate, his history, family, religion, political beliefs, and strategy. It puts Mitt in context like no other book to date.

It is best to read Mitt's own work: No Apology!

This book by a fellow Mormon and distant cousin doesn't do much to educate voters about Mitt Romney. The book vacillates from being supportive of his candidacy to criticizing his tendency to flip flop on the issues but an undue amount of the book is a bit fluffy. The biggest weakness of the book is that it fails to help readers understand Romney any better now than before they read the book. I don't understand Mormonism any better either. Romney's missionary time is given short shrift as is his time in the business world. I have no idea even after reading this book about what exactly he did to earn his 400 million, how he feels about being filthy rich, what he does with his money, how he feels about poor people, etc. There wasn't a single story that showed me these things. He just seems to be a guy who wants to be President because he wants to be President. He is famous for saying what he thinks he needs to say to get elected. He's waffled on everything from gay rights, a woman's right to choose, immigration, health care, and other issues. The Mormon church has opposed the ERA and gay rights. This man does not represent me at all. I read the book because I believe in knowing your enemies but this book didn't help me with that.
