This insightful and thoroughly researched book explores the background and personal side of Mitt Romney seldom seen in public. It explores his family history, which is inextricably linked to the history of the Mormon Church, and the authors show how this deep religious attachment shapes much of Romney’s life, whether he admits to it in public or not. They also clearly show how Mitt Romney, unlike his father, never does anything, in business or politics, without careful calculation of what’s best for him. Dan Woren’s solid, straightforward reading reflects the book’s journalistic style. Like the authors, he eschews bombast and lets the facts speak for themselves. For directly quoted material, he uses a deliberate pause almost as aural quotation marks before he reads the quote. His only weaknesses are a poor French accent for one speaker and mispronunciation of Nauvoo, Illinois, the Mormon center before the move to Utah.
