This book is a great source for anyone wondering what type of person Mitt Romney is. It gave me additional information on him and confirmed the things I already knew. He is a man who loves America and wants to fix it. I wish him well in Oct 12, Jeff Stockett rated it liked it Shelves: political. This book was written prior to the campaign. As such, some of the information here is horribly dated. The author spends time talking about how Romney will need to beat McCain, and he focuses on some of the shortcomings of John McCain.
While I agreed with a lot of it, since I'm not a John McCain fan, that information is no longer relevant.
He also assumed that Hilary Clinton would be the democratic nominee, and so he talks about the matchup between her and Romney, which is also not relevant. That being said, there was some interesting stuff here. There was a lot of biographical information about Romney, which I found the most interesting. Also, there was an appendix with a discussion between two evangelicals about whether a mormon is electable.
This discussion was interesting to me, as a member of the LDS Church, to see how outsiders view us. All in all, the biographical information about Romney is interesting, and it was interesting to see how the author, a non-mormon, views our church as a whole, but I don't know that I would recommend this book.
You have to wade through a lot of dated material to get to the interesting pieces. Jul 10, Cory rated it really liked it Shelves: lds , us-presidents. Very very conservative book. In the first couple pages it made it obvious that this would be a pro-conservative and pro-Romney book. Nothing that bothers me there though. However, the only problem with this book is it was written for the Presidential election.
But I decided since I had purchased the book I would read it even if it was a little outdated. Hewitt rips apart ever other candidate and makes it seem as though Romney is the only candidate worth even considering in the Republican pr Very very conservative book. Hewitt rips apart ever other candidate and makes it seem as though Romney is the only candidate worth even considering in the Republican primaries.
I didn't like how Hewitt made it seem as though Romney would automatically receive the Republican nomination if he wasn't mormon and even goes onto say that Romney has a mormon problem. While Romney may have a mormon problem it is not the only thing keeping Republicans from voting for Mitt. The author does not even write about Romneycare. He briefly discusses Romney's change of stance on the abortion issue but just briefly. While I support Hewitt's message I feel as though he has made a great mistake in only focusing on the mormon issue.
May 17, Jonathan rated it liked it. I purchased this book several years ago when Mitt Romney was running for the White House. At the time I had many of the concerns documented in the book of why I did not want to vote for a Mormon for the White House. After reading this book I have a better grasp of exactly what Mormons believe and don't believe. They definitely are not a member of main stream Christianity, but they are moral, responsible, good people as a whole. The few Mormons that I count as friends have showed the same good qua I purchased this book several years ago when Mitt Romney was running for the White House.
The few Mormons that I count as friends have showed the same good qualities. In particular, I learned a lot about Mitt Romney himself and he definitely is a good person and would have made a great President. Unfortunately, Donald Trump is the nominee and I did not like the rest of the field.
I rated the book a 3 star because of the bias of author not because of Mitt Romney. The author should have left some of his personal thoughts out of the book.

Jan 02, Peter Wolfley rated it really liked it. I've always been a big fan of Mitt Romney but that was mainly because he reminded me of my dad. After reading this book I can honestly say he is the man for the job. He is a service-minded man of ability, intelligence, integrity, and charisma. He has the Midas touch, everything he gets his hands on turns to gold. Out of the current contenders for the White House this year, he is the only one who has what it will take to pull the country out of its current nose dive.
He's a real leader. The parts I've always been a big fan of Mitt Romney but that was mainly because he reminded me of my dad. The parts of this book which profile his problem solving skills should be enough to convince any American that he is perfectly qualified to be President. Romney also employs the Lincoln "Team of Rivals" strategy to making informed decisions on important issues.
He is not out for the power or the prestige of the position. This is a man who wants to give back and bring America back to its Golden days. I believe in Mitt Romney. Jun 23, Michael rated it it was amazing. This is an excellent book on Mitt Romney's years of service as governor of Mass.
Hugh Hewitt does an excellent job arguing that Evangelical Christians, as well as the secular news media, should consider his faith out of bounds.

Well, first, the Constitution states that there should not be a relig This is an excellent book on Mitt Romney's years of service as governor of Mass. Well, first, the Constitution states that there should not be a religious qualification. Secondly, as a matter of religious liberty, a presidential candidate should be free to worship any God under their choosing, so long as it does not have a detrimental effect upon the nation.
Hewitt does an excellent job in presenting both arguments, and I found them very convincing. Oct 27, Joe Meservy rated it really liked it Shelves: biographies.
The first part of this is a terrific biography with close up accounts of Romney's early business days and successes. I found that chapter particularly strong, vibrant, and inspiring. I would encourage anyone to read that chapter because of the well balanced and very lucid writings of Romney which have been reprinted within. I liked it.
The latter part of the book including the parts regarding challenges pr The first part of this is a terrific biography with close up accounts of Romney's early business days and successes.
The latter part of the book including the parts regarding challenges presented by Romeny's religion is a lot of circumspect and goes beyond credible sources and into some "Anti-Mormon" literature and so I didn't find that portion interesting Jun 26, Brian Olson rated it liked it. A very good book about Mitt Romney. And seeing as how he's very likely to be the next president, probably one thats worth checking out. I learned some disturbing bits about Mormonism example: they're not Christians - they believe we are all "becoming" gods, and that Jesus was just further along the spiritual path than most of us , but aside from that, Romney looks like an extremely capable and ideal candidate.
And personally, his religion doesn't concern me: as president, his morals, ethics an A very good book about Mitt Romney. And personally, his religion doesn't concern me: as president, his morals, ethics and talents do, and they all seem to be impeccable. Oct 01, Kelly Philpott rated it liked it. I found it to be an interesting perspective of a non-LDS author on Mitt Romney's campaign for the presidency in , and whether or not he would win based on his religion. I got a little lost in all of the political data and found the author to twist words a little bit when referring to the LDS church and it's members.
The book actually makes me want to read Mitt Romney's "Turnaround" book because of all of the quotes and references. Jan 28, Clark rated it really liked it Recommends it for: every voter. This book opened my eyes to the strength of experience Romney has as a potential President. It also shows some of the similarities and major differences in stands to the other candidates. This is a must read. The reason I rated this only a 4 is the sentence structure is sometimes poor requiring a re-read of some sentences.
A few sentences or paragraphs left me wondering what he was trying to say. Jan 27, Joseph rated it really liked it. Hugh Hewitt is a conservative talk show host and unabashedly pro-Romney, but the book would still be a good read for anyone interested in politics.
The points made about him are valid. It probably won't convince any Hillary supporters to hop the fence, but it does make a strong case for him as both the best conservative among the top-tier GOP candidates and the strongest leader among the candidates in either party. Sep 25, Alycia rated it really liked it. I only give it a four, because I didn't think it flowed very well.
But however I think it was a great topic to write about because of religous bigotry. Could be a real problem over years. All right. But they're going to say that as a result of that, you can't use Kleenex. But here's the thing: Everyone knows the EPA has been acting lawlessly, has drawn rebuke after rebuke from courts, was run by secretive appointees who slink away in scandal and is populated with ideological extremists who reject the idea of congressional oversight.

Hewitt interviewed Donald Trump on his program. And you know, in the early, in the s, people talked about global cooling. They thought the Earth was cooling.
