Ford does an excellent job of laying out an alternative framework that could actually produce a winning candidate for the GOP the next time around.

The ideas in this book are so simple and straightforward that the Republican Party should be kicking itself for not implementing them sooner. Mr. O'Connell does a great and entertaining job of carrying out a much-needed "intervention" for the scatterbrained party.

To be perfectly honest I haven't had this much trouble reading a book since the time Waldo visited a barber shop sign factory

With brilliant candor, O'Connell takes the GOP to the high church of the painful truth. In a witty, nonsensical manner, O'Connell offers keen insight and a cohesive roadmap all candidates should read.

Coach O'Connell delivers a revitalizing locker room pep-talk to the Bad News Bears of politics, the modern GOP. Delineated in the form of a ten-rule plan, his candid suggestions are to be taken seriously but not personally. With rules like "The Preseason Doesn't Win You the Superbowl", the book provides the consummate comeback strategy for a struggling Republican team.

While I was not always impressed with the writing in this book (thus the four stars instead of five), the content is very important for every Republican as well as the increasing number of independents (like me for the past 16 years) who gave up on the Republican Party to read.

I thought this was a very poignant and insightful read. The 10 rules make all the sense in the world, from embracing pop culture to widening their demographics. I thought his arguments against Hilary for the 2016 election verged on the extreme and almost sounded like talking points I would hear on FOX. He lists a few fringe candidates for president, but he mostly lists ones that are competent and capable. Overall, good read at a good price.
