The Best Way to Hear a Politician's Views

Where does It Takes a Family rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book rates very well for the purpose I listened to it, which was to understand Santorum's positions in this election year.

What other book might you compare It Takes a Family to and why?

Any of the books written by any of the Candidates, such as Mitt Romney's No Apology and Gingrich's To Renew America

Which scene was your favorite?

This is non-fiction so there was no

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listen mostly in my car and never listen to a book in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Listening to a politicians own words in a full length book gives you gfreat insight into their thought processes and their basic beliefs and political strategies. It is a great way to learn many things that can help shape your vote and I strongly encourage people to read as many cnadidate books as they can and see which candidate has the best to offer in their mind.

The book itself shows how a loving family can overcome anything as long as they have each other.
