Publisher's Summary

Herman Cain’s candidacy is outpacing such high profile candidates as Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, and Tim Pawlenty in growth and support, registering third in overall popularity among Republican voters in a recent Gallup poll. In this memoir, Cain answers his most often-asked question: Who is Herman Cain?
Growing up poor in the segregated south, Cain describes how he pulled himself out of the depths of poverty and became successful. Through college, a stint as a Navy mathematician, working at Pillsbury and becoming its youngest ever vice president, and eventually serving as CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Herman Cain relied on self-motivation and determination to get where he is today. His strong beliefs and values have aided him in his career and personal life, and he reveals his self-made secrets in My Name Is Herman Cain! Motivated by his children and grandchildren, and his many supporters, Cain announced his candidacy in May 2011, and the nation watches as he joins the growing number of Republicans duking it out for their party's nomination in 2012.

Boring and self-indulgent

This is just warmed over self-indulgence. I don't doubt that Cain transported himself from poverty to a captain of industry, but this book does not do his migration justice. I't;'s full of anecdotes that he thinks are funny or worth repeating as lessons. I found them boring. And Cain laughing over his own humor or insights do NOT make them funny or interesting. I had to force myself to listen thnking that someone who aspired to the Presidency would have something worthwhile to say. He doesn't.

Heavy on memoirs, light on political agenda

The book covers the author's personal life, with lots of anecdotes about his warm family life and business career, but it provides very little information about what Mr. Cain intends to do to improve our economy and halt the war on the middle class. He does state his intention to enforce our immigration laws and deport illegal aliens, but even there he suggests that he might delegate that task to the states.

I was disappointed because I expected a clear, detailed statement of what Mr. Cain proposes to do if he is elected and the book does not provide that.
