Overview

After giving birth to three babies, Lenore Romney was told by doctors that she wouldn't be able to have another. But in 1947, she confounded her doctors by bearing her fourth and final child, Willard Mitt Romney. She called him her "miracle baby."

Like his father, George, Mitt Romney has been a man of great ambitions. Unable to decide whether to pursue a path in business or law, he chose both, earning degrees from Harvard's business and law schools at the same time. Like his father, Mitt rose to the top in the business world, governed a state, and ran for president. This book profiles his extraordinary life, from his days as a fun-loving prankster to his "Believe in America" presidential campaign in 2012.

For years, Americans have wondered, "Who is the real Mitt Romney?" Political Profiles: Mitt Romney explores that question in detail-and the answers may surprise you.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Erin Forson
This timely and unique reference series skillfully examines the lives of prominent politicians who appear frequently in the media today. Each volume, written by a different author, begins with the early years of a selected American politician and moves through to the present using uncomplicated, unbiased language and short chapters that are appropriate for young readers who may be new to politics. Using generous source notes and well-chosen photographs, authors highlight the milestones, failures, accomplishments, and political affiliations of politician such as: Joe Biden, Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and John Lewis, to name a few. The series provides valuable information for students performing research for class assignments, or for those interested in reading an engaging, succinct biography about important United States politicians. Unlike similar biographical series such as People to Know Today (Enslow, 2006-2011) and USA Today Biographies (USA Today, 2009-1013), which include famous Americans from all walks of life past and present, these titles focus exclusively on American politicians from the current era and would be an invaluable addition to any academic or public library. (Political Profiles) Ages 11 to 18.
