"Governor Daniels has emerged as one of our nation's leading voices for reform and common sense in government." — Speaker of the House John Boehner
"The onetime Reagan White House political director and Bush White House budget chief is not your run-of-the-mill intellectual. His style is to be down- home, but his record of accomplishment is dazzling."— David S. Broder, The Washington Post
"He's one of the brightest governors in America."— New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
"[Daniels is] the rare politician telling it like it is...I would pay cash money to watch him debate Obama on these issues, and I suspect the Republic would be much the better for it."— Joe Klein, Time
"Mitch is the only one who sees the stark perils and will offer real detailed proposals...He would be the anti-Obama.— Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush

Written before Obama's reelection, the book anticipates the American people becoming more responsible and self-sufficient, the direction we have moved in Indiana. But I fear that, nationally, we have tilted too far into nanny-state for recovery, and Mitch's hope for the future is no longer possible.
Someone in the distant future may read this and see that there were at least a few responsible people at this time in our declining nation.
Gov. Daniels is a rare public servant. He looks at issues with clarity and speaks directly to the heart of a matter. He isn't known for drawing attention to himself
so when he speaks people do listen, whether they agree or not. It is refreshing to read a book that does not blur the issues with partison retoric and if that type of straight-forward writing is what you are looking for, look no farther.
I recommend this book to any American concerned with the future of our nation.
