Overview

Mitt Romney takes a frank and revealing look at what makes Mitt the man tick, protraying him as more human than he often appears to be on the stump: his character and convictions, his words and actions, his flips and his flops, and his triumphs and setbacks. It also attempts to answer the question everyone is asking: Could a faithful Mormon really win his party’s nomination and then upset the popular, if now struggling, incumbent president, Barack Obama? Drawing on extensive research amassed over more than two decades, including interviews with people who know Romney best—allies and adversaries alike—this book paints a savvy, textured, and revealing portrait of the candidate, his history, family, religion, political beliefs, and strategy. It puts Mitt in context like no other book to date.

Meet the Author

Ronald  B. Scott was a writer for many of Time, Inc.’s magazines—Time, Life, and Sports Illustrated and was part of the small editorial team that founded Time’s eminently successful People Magazine. His freelance pieces have been published by, among others, USA Today; Seattle Post-Intelligencer; Money Magazine; Life Magazine; People Magazine; Cook’s Magazine; The Christian Science Monitor; Australia Golf; The Boston Business Journal; The Megapolis Express (Moscow); Medical World News; The Salt Lake Tribune; The Deseret News; BYTE Magazine, and a number of specialty publications. He has ghost written op-ed pieces that have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Salt Lake Tribune, and other publications. Scott was the first journalist to raise the “flip flopping” issue in late 2005 when Romney, in preparation for a run at the Presidency in 2008, abruptly changed his position on abortion and seemed to adjust his stance on gay rights by opposing same sex marriage. In the run-up to the 2008 primary election season, Scott’s 2005 article in Sunstone Magazine was quoted or used as primary source material on Romney’s political history by many leading news organizations such as The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, and National Public Radio. Even the Salt Lake Tribune—which knows Romney and Mormonismabout as well as any newspaper in the county and where Scott began his career as a journalist—has turned to him for his thoughtful analysis of the impact of the church on politics and public policy. In the process of researching the book, Scott discovered he too is a distant cousin to Romney and the other Mormon candidate, Jon Huntsman. “It is a classic Mormon arrangement,” Scott laughs, “we share the same great-great-grandfather, but different great-great-grandmothers.” Amen!

    If you want an objective, intimate look at the possible next president, check this out!

    As a researcher on this book, I was constantly asked about the "slant" on this biography. Was it pro-romney or anti-romney? Would it make him more or less electable? I can tell you that Ron Scott did not have ANY agenda going in or coming out. He did not apologize for anything the governor may have done in his past but he did not attack him for the sake of attacking either. Personally, I do not think the book portrays Mitt positively or negatively but as human and all the complexities that come with that. The book if funny, intimate, fascinating, and sincere. You would truly be missing out if you do not read this book about the man who could become our next president.
