regardless of political views, this is an interesting, but VERY poorly written book it s like a five year old wrote it. Read the definitive leadership biography of Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska and John McCain s choice for vice president This book explores the leadership principles that made Sarah Palin successful Can I give this zero stars The quality of the writing was SO bad and the skew SO painful Ugh First of all, the book was poorly written and jumped around unnecessarily I ve read both books Palin penned herself, and this includes no new information If anything, it paraphrases Going Rogue in a clouded, biased voice Hilley s argues Palin follows her core values also known as Christian values in all choices It refers to same sex unions as marriage quotation marks and describes Bush as if he were Bob Dylan compelling manner folksy appeal simplifying rhetoric The worst, First of all, the book was

s argues Palin follows her core values also known as Christian values in all choices It refers to same sex unions as marriage quotation marks and describes Bush as if he were Bob Dylan compelling manner folksy appeal simplifying rhetoric The worst, however, is when he calls Palin a feminist Excuse me not every woman in politics feministPalin is all about pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, but she s a renegade PTA mom surrounded by supportive family It worked for her, and it s a solid reference point for her campaign That s what makes her a good conservative However, feminism means fighting for an individual s rights regardless of their sex Conservative feminism may as well be an oxymoron Pro choice is not exactly pro abortion it s pro right of individual to make her own choice on the situation without the government s input Palin does well as a strong woman in a man s world, and I respect her for it Her best asset is her ability to cut the fat when it comes to unnecessary government spending she s a thrifty lady But remove her name from the feminism roster, because she s fighting for the other team Though this book and the material is dated, I thought it was a good education on some specific political events of the Alaskan past It was a great insight into Sarah Palin, her upbringing, her theology However, A New Kind of Leader was not a main focus I wantedin learning about some great leadership models, but Sarah has done precisely what is required and expected as a leader I feel the author thinks this a revolutionary concept and this is sad, because there were great people with Though this book and the material is dated, I thought it was a good education on some specific political events of the Alaskan past It was a great insight into Sarah Palin, her

leader I feel the author thinks this a revolutionary concept and this is sad, because there were great people with grand leadership principles through Americas history I wonder if Sarah read or currently reads from sources of these great ideas and foundations Sarah Palin is doing her divinely assigned part and has helped the Alaskan political process clean up it s act, and it would have been a better course for our country to let her lead in a much greater capacity This was what I felt like was written honestly with no sway either way of like or dislike from the author This book is about the Governor of Alaska and and Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin The book tells the story of Sarah Palin, and goes into depth on the character she has developed throughout her life from childhood till now This is a very interesting yet informative book, one that I thought really gives the reader a good understanding of Sarah Palin about all that she has done If This was what I felt

Sarah Palin and learn who she is, where she came from, and what she s about I honestly didn t think this book was the right book for me I think Sarah Palin would ve been a good leader, however, I agreed with her about some things, but some of her theories were confusing and I didn t fully understand them This book tells a lot about Sarah Palin and her journey in the running for vice president and a lot about her backstory It also tells about the family and their beliefs that abortion is wrong and that s why she had her son with down syndrome and is also supporting he I honestly didn t

our first female Vice President, but from what I read, I don t think I would have voted for her The author compares Sarah Palin to 10 Leadership Characteristics he believes are needed in the leaders of today and in the days to come He shows how she measures up to those and also points out some of her failings Basically, his conclusion is that the leaders of the present and near future need to be much like Sarah Palin His writing has its own lackings He repeats and jumps around and the sentence structure leaves something to be desired at times His final paragraph is his best. My kind of Republican Not one whine in the entire book I guess that s redundant Back in my days when I did some womanizing and drinkinizing, her looks would have been enough But now, the fact that she has her own gun puts her pretty much over the top If you are a Republican and like Sarah, you ll get a kick out of this book If you re a Democrat or a proabortion person thank God YOU made it at least you ll have apoplexy by the second page Please read it.
