On his first presidential visit to address the European nations, President Obama felt it necessary to apologize for America's international power. He repeated that apology when visiting Latin America, and again to Muslims worldwide in an interview broadcast on Al-Arabiya television.

In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential - not just for our own well-being, but for the world's. Governments such as China and a newly robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and Islam continues its dangerous rise. Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded. From the long-term decline of our manufacturing base, our laggard educational system that has left us without enough engineers, scientists, and other skilled professionals, our corrupted financial practices that led to the current crisis, and the crushing impact of entitlements on our future obligations, America is in debt, overtaxed, and unprepared for the challenges it must face. We need renewal: fresh ideas to cut through complicated problems and restore our strength.

Creative and bold, Romney proposes simple solutions to rebuild industry, create good jobs, reduce out-of-control spending on entitlements and health care, dramatically improve education, and restore a military battered by eight years of war.

Most important, he calls for a new commitment to citizenship, a common cause we all share, rather than a laundry list of individual demands. Many of his solutions oppose President Obama's policies, many also run counter to Republican thinking, but all have one strategic aim: to move America back to political and economic strength. Personal and dynamically-argued, No Apology is a call to action by a man who cares deeply about America's history, its promise, and its future.

    " It's cool to see things from Romney's point of view and the ideas are sold pretty well, but the book was obviously ghost written. "

    " I found this book very interesting as it educated me on many things in the world of government politics in which I felt my knowledge was lacking. Clearly this book is written from a Republican view, but it is not a democrat bashing work. In the book, Romney criticizes both parties, as well as the media, and other forces at currently work to weaken America and diminish productivity and thus economic growth. Instead of just exaggerating problems and telling his readers who is to blame, Romney proposes real solutions to the problems and discusses obstacles to those solutions. Though I can't say I agree with everything he says, I can say that I am impressed with his method of problem solving, and was impressed with many of his ideas. It also gives the reader a sense of just how complex the problem solving process in government is, and how so often good ideas are ruined by those who would put themselves above others, be it politicians, labor unions, teacher unions, or those benefiting from the dole. I now feel like I know what Romney stands for and how he would approach governing if elected someday. "

    " I listened to this audiobook as part of my election year routine - listen to or read books by or about the presidential candidates as a form of civic "homework" aimed at making me a more informed voter. This year is particularly odd for me in this regard, as that it is the first time since I reached the age of majority that, in the last few weeks before the election, I remain undecided. This book did not materially help me make my decision in the way I hoped that it would. Romney does seem to have some good ideas, but there are also some that I don't care for. For instance, he denounces multiculturalism in a way that makes me think he may not appreciate the strengths of cultures other than our own, and his "no apologies" defense of American greatness reminds me of the sort of tone-deaf arguments made by some people who have little conception of the world beyond our shores that America can do no wrong. And unfortunately, as I hoped that it would not be, the book was more or less a really long stump speech. There was quite a bit of substance, but more "filler" remained that what I would have liked. I also would have liked to hear more about the candidate himself and his life, not just a laundry list of all his policies and platforms, which it sometimes sounded like. "

    " I was listening to this book on CD and I loved it. It's narated by Mitt himself. We crashed our car and 8 of the 10 CDs were trapped in the CD player so I didn't finish the last 2 but I plan to get the book and finish it. "
