This book was ghostwritten to promote Palin's political career. You already know if you'll like it or not. ( )

Disappointing in regard to revelations of much of anything new - but the book did help me make a decision that while Sarah may have some important things to say (things that should be paid attention to by Americans and the news media without name-calling or immediate dismissal or ridicule), I most likely would not support her as a presidential candidate ( )

Very well written an informative. I see this as Palin's Doctrine. ( )

I read this book in order to gain a better understanding of Sarah Palin and the conservative movement she had invigorated, in her own words rather than those of detractors or fans.


The discussion of the 2008 American election campaign from Palin's perspective was interesting since as a non-American, I have little understanding of the process. Yet, this book feels ultimately unsubstantial - though it is an easy read, it is shallow in terms of Palin's politics and goals. Her early life in Alaska was interesting and it is clear how dear to her family is. However, I came away with little understanding of her politics other than her populism.

Compared to [b:America By Heart|8175807|America by Heart Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag|Sarah Palin|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1280439574s/8175807.jpg|13022253], I found this one more substantively written and the ideas in Going Rogue were more cogent and better presented. ( )

Going rogue by Sarah Palin was a “unique” book. It did not hold my attention, and at times i found myself getting lost. Going Rogue is basically about Sarah Palin the Governor of the state of Alaska. The book is about everything from her miscarriage, to The moment Senator John Mccain asked her to be his running mate. The only problem, no one cares. Don't get me wrong i'm sure some super GOP member is all over this book, but there was so much information about her childhood that was irrelevant to the story line. I would not recommend this book to anyone, not even a political lover like myself. ( )

When [this book's] pages are not dismally boring they are positively alarming, and you can almost see the ashen faces of men who suddenly realised what a ghastly thing had ­happened to their party. But the book was a terrific read.

For many politicians, family life is sandwiched in between long hours in public service. Palin wants us to know that for her it is the reverse. Political success is an accident that says nothing about you. Success as a wife, mother and citizen says everything.

Do I believe any of this? It doesn’t matter. What matters is that she does, and that her readers feel they are hearing an authentic voice. I find the voice undeniably authentic (yes, I know the book was written “with the help” of Lynn Vincent, but many books, including my most recent one, are put together by an editor). It is the voice of small-town America, with its folk wisdom, regional pride, common sense, distrust of rhetoric (itself a rhetorical trope), love of country and instinctive (not doctrinal) piety.
 
Would I recommend reading Going Rogue? Yes, definitely, regardless of your political point of view. Liberals, conservatives and independents should read everything by office seekers of the past -- and, maybe, the future.
 
In Going Rogue, geography is both destiny and distortion. Wasilla is the centre of the universe, then there's the big city of Juneau, then Russia, and then, way on the other side of the Earth, is Washington DC. Washington is a foreign country to Sarah Palin. As for genuine foreign policy or diplomacy? Simply not on her radar. Yes, her son is in the military, but Iraq, Afghanistan, the Middle East – all these float like a singular symbol rather than real places on the planet. "Our boys" go off to "distant lands" that she leaves undescribed: invisible worlds whose only function in this book is to toughen said boys into men and to deliver them back as heroes, martyrs, deer-hunters and, yes, patriots. She relates her most interesting life and her great achievements from a simple background. She is admirable.
