While no two people can agree on every thing I found I do agree with her thoughts on many things. Reading these quotes I came to feel that she is a down to earth, real type person, one I might enjoy meeting. Some of these quotes made me laugh, made me think and shake my head in wonder. It is a quick read at about 180 pages and one I will recommend.
Quote: pg 37 "Sarah Palin: I like running alone, and having the Secret Service with me added a little bit of pressure. I'm thinking I gotta have good form and can't be hyperventilating and can't be showing too much pain, and that adds a little more pressure on you as you're trying to be out there enjoying your run. Then I fell coming down a hill and was so stinkin` embarassed that a golf cart full of Secret Service guys had to pull up beside me...In the debate you could see a big, fat, ugly Band-Aid on my right hand.Read more ›
Lewis describes how Palin was fairly unheard of back in 2008 when she became John McCain's running mate and since then she has made quite a name for herself. It seems like Palin became a household name overnight and although I'm not huge into following all the intricacies of politics, even I was familiar with Sarah Palin and I knewall about her family and the drama that the tabloids covered.
"She was beloved by conservatives, disdained by liberals, carefully studied by centrist independents, and dissected relentlessly by an insatiable media machine".
Overall I would give this book a check plus. I especially agree with a quote describing the book - "Matt Lewis has gathered some of Palin's most memorable remarks, reminding us that whether you consider her a rogue or a patriot, her words reveal a genuine love for America."
And in the end, isn't that what matters?

I did enjoy the book, but did not find it a quick read or even truly an engaging one. Rather than a book to spend time just sitting and reading, this is a book that I would prefer to have on hand to read one or two things here and there, or as reference material.
The quotes in this book cover a range of approximately five years (2005 through 2010) and you can see Sarah's changing opinions in some of them. I find this refreshing - it shows that she can change and grow as her understanding of a situation changes.

-We're not educating our youth about the exceptional nature of America. For America to survive, we've got to pass that on to the next generation.
-Los Angeles Times, June 26, 2010
This book has over 400 quotes included. A great little handbook of inspiration and insight into the woman Palin is. A quick , easy read.
ON BEING SARAH: My dad always says, "Don't retreat, just reload." Don't let anybody tell you to sit down and shut up. - Kansas City Star, May 1, 2010
Even if you are not a Sarah Palin fan, you can take away something from this book. Some of her quotes are simply something you would say to your child or a good old friend. I would tell my daughter "don't let someone tell you sit down and shut up." Maybe you will want to pick up one of her other books after reading
