Publisher's Summary

On his first presidential visit to address the European nations, President Obama felt it necessary to apologize for America’s international power. He repeated that apology when visiting Latin America, and again to Muslims worldwide in an interview broadcast on Al-Arabiya television.
In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world’s. Governments such as China and a newly robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and Islam continues its dangerous rise. Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded. From the long-term decline of our manufacturing base, our laggard educational system that has left us without enough engineers, scientists, and other skilled professionals, our corrupted financial practices that led to the current crisis, and the crushing impact of entitlements on our future obligations, America is in debt, overtaxed, and unprepared for the challenges it must face. We need renewal: fresh ideas to cut through complicated problems and restore our strength.
Creative and bold, Romney proposes simple solutions to rebuild industry, create good jobs, reduce out-of-control spending on entitlements and health care, dramatically improve education, and restore a military battered by eight years of war.
Most important, he calls for a new commitment to citizenship, a common cause we all share, rather than a laundry list of individual demands. Many of his solutions oppose President Obama’s policies, many also run counter to Republican thinking, but all have one strategic aim: to move America back to political and economic strength. Personal and dynamically-argued, No Apology is a call to action by a man who cares deeply about America’s history, its promise, and its future.

You can like this book without being a Republican.

I have never voted Republican and I have no intention of voting for Mitt Romney but I like to read or listen to the books written by all the major political players. I feel that a book is the best way for a politician to get his/her true message out without being subject to 30 second sound bites. I have listened to many and more of these books. Mitt Romney's "No Apology" is the best of the bunch both for his excellent/personal reading of it and for the clear and concise way he states his political positions. I disagree with a lot of what he says but I have to give him credit for writing and reading an excellent book. If you are interested in American politics this book is worth reading regardless of your personal politics.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when ever he talked about making things work. You have to work with what you have.


Any additional comments?

Our current President had published two books-I read them both-before election day. I felt to be informed, I needed to read this book too. (I also like that the book was published well before the primary season when canidates morph.) It appears the choices will be between Obama and Romney. Romney is a problem solver. Listen to this book and get past the sound bites to what he thinks on a large variety of subjects.
