“Speculation abounds regarding Christie's political aspirations, and Ingle and Symons provide an excellent introduction to this provocative politician. "He's demanding, he's loyal, he's combative, he's entertaining, he's mouthy--but never boring." Neither is this book.” ―Publishers Weekly
“A thorough, exacting account of how an outspoken son of New Jersey became the hottest ticket in conservative politics.” ―The Hill
“Gov. Christie's ability to make the case for reform--and to defend his positions bluntly--has endeared him to GOP donors.” ―The Wall Street Journal
“Mr. Ingle and Mr. Symons have produced a very readable and illuminating portrait of Chris Christie that shows, whether you love him or hate him, he is a genuine article - and he is here to stay.” ―The Washington Times
