Sarah Palin has many faces: hockey mom, fundamentalist Christian, sex symbol, Republican ideologue, fashion icon, maverick populist. But, above all, Palin has become one thing: an American obsession that just won't go away. Edited by two senior editors at The Nation magazine, this sharp, smart, up-to-the-minute book examines Palin's obscure origins in Wasilla, Alaska, her spectacular rise to the effective leadership of the Republican Party, and the nightmarish prospect of her continuing to dominate the nation's political scene.

    " I took off a star for the handful of typos and the obviously slapped-together quality, but what a good book. Of course, it will not be read by the people who really need to read it. "

    " she makes me want to vomit. it was hillarious to hear her try to defend herself. i thought that perhaps this book would make me have a little more respect for her.... but if it was even possible.... i have less. listening to this just reaffirmed the idea that i am indeed a democrat. "

    " I really expected something much better. "

    " Tip: Go to a popular Alaskan bookstore in Anchorage to buy this book with a smirk on your face. How fun. "

    " After 8 years with an idiot at the helm of our country I'd have thought the Republicans would try to find someone with substance instead of charisma alone. As an Arizonan I am painfully aware of McCain's lack of charisma. Also as an Arizona I can tell you all the things he's done for Arizona. Like uh, umm, let's see...oh yea, not one damn thing. So the Repubs go for someone with charisma to balance Johnny and choose a woman to appeal to the feminists (oh which she's not one) and an anti-abortionist to appeal to them and a extreme fringe fundamentalist nutsack psuedo-christian to appeal to the bible belt. In the process they found an empty suit (but hey she looks good in a skirt!). They chose a woman who had zero experience and one who is totally ignorant of any government policies, foreign or otherwise, could only name one supreme court decision and who cannot string together a few sentences into a coherent thought. Even when the to news people who interviewed her tossed soft questions to her underhanded she couldn't get a hit. She couldn't even name a single news magazine! Going Rouge tells it all through the essays of many reporters, news people, and others. Read it and remember it so we don't elect another anti-intellectual to the highest positions in our nation. "

    " I still wouldn't vote for Sarah Palin although I enjoyed reading her book and found her quite compelling as a woman making waves in a man's world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candace | 12/22/2013

    " I really liked this book. It really shows how far the media and political parties go to get their way. VERY interresting! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Myra Boles | 11/2/2013

    " Really interesting! We definitely need more people like her in our government! I was a fan during the election and will always be a fan! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Lilly | 10/21/2013

    " An anthology of op-ed pieces, all making it clear that Palin is a monstrous right wing fool, and nominating her was stupid. There may, of course, be other points of view, but I can't imagine they're held by anyone with a working mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Sharp | 10/12/2013

    " Before you form an option of Sarah Palin i recomment you read her book. I was pleasantly surprised how much I like her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 8/27/2013

    " I've enjoyed the book so far, but just got to the point where she get's a call to join John McCain's bid for the presidency. I don't think I'll finish the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daylynn Foster | 7/22/2013

    " I still won't vote for her. Don't trust her for some reason... Interesting, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara Merry | 7/5/2013

    " Great info-helps understand the republicans-bi-partisan "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rita Boissonneault | 5/23/2013

    " Love what this woman is all about! She is raw and real and glad I read her perspective finally. Some parts are very political and slow but overall loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 4/14/2013

    " This collection about all facets of Sarah Palin, simply reinforces my belief that she is one scary kook. The sooner she is prevented from EVER influencing public policy again, the safer America will be. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angi | 3/19/2013

    " Ummmm . . . not that interesting. I may not complete this book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Carr | 1/23/2013

    " Interesting, enlightening and answered my questions as to why she was suddenly silent and different in her answers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 1/21/2013

    " Contradictory story. The suggests Palin considers herself a maverick, bucking the political machine to do things her own way. Unfortunately, she repeatedly portrays herself as a victim of the campaign management and the media. It's hard to be a rouge when you bow down so often. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 12/1/2012

    " i am pretty anti-palin, so this book just fueled my fire. it is a collection of op-ed pieces, not an overall book like i expected. i would recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaitlin | 11/15/2012

    " Easy read, interesting take on Mrs. Palin "
