Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The great service of this new biography is that it humanizes Romney. The authors sniff over their subject with bloodhound thoroughness, dredging up old report cards, housing deeds, and family records and videos. They interview seemingly everyone who had contact with Romney every phase of his life.” New York Times Book Review
“A narrative that’s absorbing and fair-minded…Perhaps the most useful portions of The Real Romney deconstruct his management style as a Bain executive and governor of Massachusetts, providing clues as to how he might govern as president.” New York Times
“Lays out Romney’s story in full and clear detail, including fascinating in-depth stuff about his family’s history…This book shows us a Mitt Romney for whom family and faith remain unshakable pillars and who knows that his ‘power-ally is money.’” Los Angeles Times
“A genuinely compelling story and a more thorough record of Romney’s life than has yet appeared.” Washington Post
“A fascinating story that sheds new light on an elusive subject.” Financial Times
“A riveting and revealing look at a complex and enigmatic man.” Booklist
