When my 20-year-old daughter shook Howard Dean's hand, he smiled and asked warmly for her vote. He didn't hesitate when he saw her eyebrow was pierced. He didn't talk down to a young woman approaching her first presidential election. He was kind and attentive and he won the vote he so politely requested. Lisa Rogak's book deftly captures this amazing leader through stylish and thoughtful quotes, as the title suggests, in his own words. It's a great, quick overview about Dr. Dean. It's a must for any good citizen committed to taking back the country for ALL Americans, not just the wealthy or hawkish.

I spoke with Gov. Dean when he was in Charleston a few months back. I was impressed with his speech and asked if he had any books that collected his ideas. He mentioned this and "Winning Back America," and both had not yet been released at the time. I told him I'd look forward to reading them.
Essentially, this is just that. A collection of his ideas in quotes of varying lengths of varying issues of the day. Those who have heard Dean speak in person or who have heard him unedited on C-Span will recognize much of this as standards in Gov. Dean's speeches.
A few of Gov. Dean's best lines ("I'd rather be right and lose than wrong and win") are not present here, but enough of his standards are here to give you a good idea of what he's about-a man of ideas who bases his beliefs on his feelings and experiences as opposed to any political dogma.
In this book, Gov. Dean says that his major political influences were Jimmy Carter and Harry Truman. Judging from the times I've heard him in person and from this book, I would put him closer to Bobby Kennedy and Wendell Willkie as I think his ideas have more in common with the latter two.
In either case, it's a good basic way to make up your mind about how you feel about Gov. Dean. For further and indepth reading , check his "Winning Back America."

This is Howard Dean in his own words. Not spin form political pundits or pseudo-intellectuals, but a collection of quotes from Dean himself. This way the reader can come to his or her own conclusions. This book is power-packed, concise and straight-forward - much like Howard Dean himself! I highly recommend this book if you are interested in learning the truth about Dean's views on important issues in our country.
