Jason Rink gives a great outline of the life and legacy of one of the most patriotic congressmen in the recent age. Ron Paul is the grandfather of the Tea Party and this book offers a better insight into how Dr. Paul started one of the largest movements in America.

If you're looking for a proffesional biography that is filled with interesting tid bits about Ron Paul, you've come to the right book. Though not as fat or fulfilling as a biography on Steve Jobs, for those who are desiring to learn more about the man and his life, and not just his politics, this is the one to buy. Jason Rink does a fine job of highlighting the lesser known side of Paul.

It is such a good book that I tracked down Jason Rink to let him know what a good book it was. In the ensuing conversation, he explained to me that he wasn't the sole author although his name is on the cover. The book was a collaborative effort between him and 20 other people. They all did research and wrote their own sections of the book, which originally appeared as Ron Paul: A Life of Ideas. For the updated edition, Jason Rink then was tasked by the publisher with melding all this together to make it more coherent and readable and for that, his name was put on the front cover, but he feels like it's not his book, and he insisted that in my review I mention that the 20 other people mentioned in the Acknowledgments section deserves as much credit as him. So there, I said it. Now on to what a good book this is.

I don't know of any `authorized' biographies of Dr. Paul, but this book, which bills itself as `the unauthorized biography of an unauthorized politician' will be a tough act to follow. There was so much in this book that I did not know, and I thought I knew quite a bit. In this book you see the man himself being shaped. You see young Ronnie as a farm kid in rural Pennsylvania, one of 5 kids. You read of the Paul as an intern being forced to watch an abortion, and the impression that made on him. You read of Dr. Paul the fledgling obstetrician, whose practice had two rules; no abortions and no federal money. Rink and company gives us insight into the kitchen table discussion that resulted in Ron Paul's first venture into politics, and of the concern for sound money that fueled it, and then his defeat at this first venture.

What makes the book (which ends in late 2011 just as my book is beginning) interesting is to see once again Dr.
