Mike Huckabee's run for the Republican presidential nomination was truly amazing. But beyond the headlines, few understand his transformation from a long-shot evangelical candidate into a viable contender.

Huckabee now presents the inside story of his low-budget, grassroots campaign. He treated middle-class and working-class voters with respect and spoke to their concerns about the economy, society, and the way our country is run. They responded nationwide with great passion, volunteering and making small donations, transforming his campaign into a true movement.

His fans included not only evangelical Christians, but also others who felt he was the only Republican who really shared their values. This work will remind the four million Huckabee voters that their support and hard work were not in vain. It will also be fun to listen to, full of unreported anecdotes from the campaign trail. Huckabee also lays out his optimistic vision for America’s future. He explains how the Republican Party can unify its factions and win over middle-class and working-class voters.

Listener Opinions

    " Self-serving (what did I expect from a politician) but with some good ideas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 2/11/2014

    " I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I expected a formulaic pronouncement of Governor Huckabee's conservative credentials. There is some of that, but the book is much more. Huckabee provides great stories about the 2008 Presidential campaign trail, and some of the volunteers who selflessly assisted his campaign. One thing that is pretty clear is Mike Huckabee's lack of respect for Mitt Romney, and the campaign he ran. I suspect that this will not be his last run for President. "

    " LOVED IT!!! All I can say after reading this book is... HUCKABEE 2012!! i am SO relieved to finally see that there ARE good "politicians" out there that are interested more in making positive changes and good decisions for this country based on their belief system and morals... not necessarily based on their political affiliation (i.e. Republican vs. Democrat) but more so based on what is BEST for ALL involved. While I was not interested in politics much until about the past 4 years or so, this book has caused me to pledge to become personally involved in the next political cycle. It gave me back much hope for the upcoming leaders of this country that I had lost when McCain won the nomination for the GOP and the eventual election win of Obama the Socialist in 2008. "

    " I'm sorry I didn't know very much about him before--I could have voted for him! I love his ideas on getting the country back on track. I didn't love the campaign stuff and he kind of whines about the fact that he didn't have any money, but it was good because how many politicians can say that they travel in coach or stay at lousy hotels like the rest of us? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susanne | 1/18/2014

    " Pretty much a book about the election and how Mike feels about today's issues. I liked the read and am proud to still have my "I like Mike" shirt. Greg saw him speak at CBC last month which is how I got the book though I will tell you he does not mince words and he does NOT like Mitt Romney...Yikes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 1/9/2014

    " i think he would have made a good president. sounds like he will run again. if obama falters, i think he has a good shot. i especially like his "fair tax" policy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Todd | 8/9/2012

    " I like Huckabee and most of his political beliefs but this book seemed to just scratch the surface of his campaign and core beliefs. His campaign was definitely an uphill battle but I would have preferred a lot more insight "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C | 6/16/2012

    " Common sense on what USA should do to resolve its problems. Book has great ideas, but TOO MUCH retrospect on Huck's 2008 presidential candidacy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dick | 3/10/2012

    " This is a book by Mike Huckabee - who ran for president in 2008. He is a pastor, which meant his political base was pretty narrow. But it was nice to read ofhis principles, ethics and honesty. Reassuring that men like this still seek public life and running for the office of president. "
