Benjamin Wallace-WellsFor any biographer, Romney presents…a high degree of difficulty. Not only is the former Massachusetts governor deeply cautious, but the two institutions that have been perhaps the most important to life and his career—the Mormon Church and the private-equity firm Bain Capital—are heavily fortified and stonily non-transparent. Michael Kranish and Scott Helman…have assembled in The Real Romney a genuinely compelling story and a more thorough record of Romney's life than has yet appeared. But their account nevertheless fails to penetrate Fort Romney's formidable defenses. Theirs is a portrait of Romney as a public figure, its narrative exposing not so much the man as the career.
