Against All Odds is the extraordinary personal story of the man who rose up to meet the challenge of terrific opposition and become one of America's most promising new political figures—Senator Scott Brown. Brown is famous for succeeding popular Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy after Kennedy’s death in 2010—but, as he reveals in a compelling memoir reminiscent of Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue and Clarence Thomas’s My Grandfather’s Son, his experiences with struggle and achievement go back a lifetime.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by L | 2/7/2014

    " 2 stars for the first 2/3 of the book, but 4 for the last. I'll settle on 3. Loved him doing his own thing politically, but I agree with another reviewer on the site who indicated that he comes off as a pretentious d-bag. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Melissa | 1/29/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. Brown definitely overcame a tough background and did not let it hold him back or use it as an excuse. We need more people like him to run for public office. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Deuce Bigelow | 1/28/2014

    " He had a very colorful upbringing...and a terrible book editor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Diane M | 1/28/2014

    " While I have not always agreed with Scott Brown's reaching across the aisle, reading about his life provides a clearer understanding as to the "why" of his decisions as a Senator. "
