He may be the only Republican who can deny John McCain the nomination, and he may be the only Republican who can stop Hillary Clinton. He’s an incredibly successful businessman and a fiscal and social conservative who managed to win the governorship in one of the staunchest Democratic states in America. But Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is also a devout Mormon—so what does that mean for the election of 2008?

In the first book on this intriguing candidate, Hugh Hewitt sets out to explain Romney, his faith, and the importance of that debate. Mixing exclusive interviews with the governor and candid conversations with some of the country’s leading Christian pastors and shrewdest political observers, this is a riveting look inside the most wide-open battle for the presidency since 1948.

    " great book, written by a non mormon "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph | 2/4/2014

    " 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. "

    " Hugh Hewitt does an excellent job of giving Gov. Romney's background and why he should be our next president." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 1/15/2014

    " I thought Hewitt did a great job on this book. I think that it was interesting that in the beginning he states that he wasn't sure if he was going to vote for Romney when he was writing the book. However the book seems very pro Romney. I really enjoyed the book and how Hewitt explains things just incase the reader doesn't know everything about everything. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marlyn | 12/31/2013

    " Yuk! The glowing praises of the author would make you think he's Mitt's father or brother because in Hugh Hewitt's estimation, Mitt does everything right-not. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roger | 12/17/2013

    " Mitt Romney should have been the president-elect. "

    " Admittedly I was disappointed in some of the political manuevering that went on in the Primaries. However, this book persuaded me he could be a great president. Who really knows? I will likely read the resulting two candidates books in the coming months. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renee | 11/14/2013

    " Good to hear a bit more background about Mitt - even though it was written prior to the 2008 primaries, the info is still very fitting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynnette | 10/28/2013

    " Interesting political book. Doesn't really say much about Mormonism but talks a lot about Romney's pursuit of the White House. Interesting political insights. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 10/8/2012

    " So Hewitt may present a one-sided view, but who can't be amazed my Mitt's career and his one-of-a-kind competency and fixing organizations? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 9/15/2012

    " I read this book during the Republican Primaries and learned a great deal about Mitt Romney and the great good he would do as President. Sadly, however, that is not to be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melinda | 9/3/2012

    " A positive, uplifting book about a brilliant, ingenious businessman. It was fascinating to read of all the ways he improved Massachusetts and the Winter Olympics Committee without spending or wasting more money or resources. An inspiring story told with the flare of Hewitt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelsea | 7/21/2012

    " This was pretty hilarious without meaning to be because I'm LDS myself. The author is not LDS but is respecful. It was a smart way of detailing how Mitt Romney lost his bid for president mostly because of his religion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 6/7/2012

    " It's a good book but it was written prior to the last election so there Is some outdated debate about Giuliani and McCain etc. I enjoyed the chapters about his family and Mormons and how others think it will affect America. "

    " I found this book very interesting! "
