An excellent book. The governor gives the reader an inside  view of what was happening during the protests, his thought process,
 conversations with Democrats and Republicans alike. How the protests effected his family and home life.
 He gives several examples of how the Unions had the people of Wisconsin paying through the nose for services and how ACT 10 helped
that. He talks about things he wish he would have done different and his history with the union while working in Milwaukee County. 
It's a good read. Very thorough, well written, answers many questions.

He leaves a lot out of his account of events, such as the massive amount of out of state money that came in to help his recall effort.
He may be the nation’s most divisive and mean-spirited governor. In the book he actually brags about getting laughs from his staff by telling them this joke:

"Top Ten Ways to tell if you Might be a Member of a public sector union"
10.) You take a week off to protest in Wisconsin and your office runs better.
9.) On a snow day when they say “non-essential” people should stay home you know who they mean.
8.) You get paid twice as much as a private sector person doing the same job but make up the difference by doing half as much work.
7.) It takes longer to fire you than the average killer spends on death row.
6.) The worse you do your job, the more your boss avoids you.
5.) You think the French are working themselves to death.
4.) You know by having a copy of the Holy Koran on your desk your job is 100% safe.
3.) You spend more time at protest marches than at church.
2.) You have a Democratic congressman’s lips permanently attached to your butt.
1.) You pay more in union dues than you do for your healthcare insurance.
