In the tradition of William Bennett's Book of Virtues, Hinckley has created a classic look at the values that can change our world - and how to stand up for them. Drawing on anecdotes from his own life, as well as from our nation today, he examines 10 virtues that have proven through the ages to provide the most profound path to a better world: love, honesty, morality, civility, learning, forgiveness and mercy, thrift and industry, gratitude, optimism, and faith.
Standing for Something is an inspiring blue-print for what we can all do - as individuals, as a nation, and as a world community - to rediscover the values that make us strong and by which all of us can work toward a brighter future.

Excellent Book, OK Naration
Would you consider the audio edition of Standing for Something to be better than the print version?
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The Narrator was good, well paced, but he doesn't love the subject enough and at times seemed bored.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I loved the book- it was insightful and helped me want to be a better person and see areas of my life in which I could improve. An inspired book!
Any additional comments?
I would like to see this book narrated by a narrator who cares more both about the subject and about people in general. The narrator doesn't detract from the book too much- but his performance does limit the impact of the text.
