On September 3, 2008 Alaska Governor Sarah Palin gave a speech at the Republican National Convention that electrified the nation and instantly made her one of the most recognizable women in the world.

As chief executive of America′s largest state, she had built a record as a reformer who cast aside politics-as-usual and pushed through changes other politicians only talked about: Energy independence. Ethics reform. And the biggest private sector infrastructure project in U.S. history. While revitalizing public school funding and ensuring the state met its responsibilities to seniors and Alaska Native populations, Palin also beat the political "good ol′ boys club" at their own game and brought Big Oil to heel.

Like her GOP running mate, John McCain, Palin wasn′t a packaged and over-produced "candidate." She was a Main Street American woman: a working mom, wife of a blue collar union man, and mother of five children, the eldest of whom was serving his country in a yearlong deployment in Iraq and the youngest, an infant with special needs. Palin′s hometown story touched a populist nerve, rallying hundreds of thousands of ordinary Americans to the GOP ticket.

But as the campaign unfolded, Palin became a lightning rod for both praise and criticism. Supporters called her "refreshing," "honest," a kitchen-table public servant they felt would fight for their interests. Opponents derided her as a wide-eyed Pollyanna unprepared for national leadership. But none of them knew the real Sarah Palin.

In this eagerly anticipated memoir, Palin paints an intimate portrait of growing up in the wilds of Alaska; meeting her lifelong love; her decision to enter politics; the importance of faith and family; and the unique joys and trials of life as a high-profile working mother. She also opens up for the first time about the 2008 presidential race, providing a rare, mom′s-eye view of high-stakes national politics - from patriots dedicated to "Country First" to slick politicos bent on winning at any cost.

Going Rogue traces one ordinary citizen′s extraordinary journey, and imparts Palin′s vision of a way forward for America and her unfailing hope in the greatest nation on earth.

Book Review: PALIN

As an avid reader, usually not intersted in Political Figures, nor politics in general. However, this book has been highly publicized and I was curious as to the content. Prices at various "Book Stores", I found this to 1/2 price of what they wer asking! It js truely written from a 'hockey mom's point of view, genuine, and realistic. In the political arena, not only is it well written, but absolutely believable. You will not be able to put this book down. Not being a PALIN fan, this book has truly changed my mind about the stature of Capitol Hill, Senate, House, Congress down to & including the peons of mayor, even School Board seats on a local level. If you want to read THE FACTS, I truly believe what Sarah said is fact. Perhaps she will be a contender for the next election! Read it and judge for yourself. I PROMOTE THIS BOOK HIGHLY. BEING MALE - ARE WE READY FOR A FEMALE PRESIDENT?I SAW THE CHANGE IS WORTH A SECOND LOOK AND NOT A GLANCE. NO WROSE THAN WE NOW HAVE! Judge for yourself. A small investment in the future and YOUR rights.

whether you agree with Gov Palin or not, the book is an interesting read, very different from the usual political books--and thank you Wal Mart for making the book available at a decent price.

A fantastic read. The Katie Curic interview was a setup against Sarah to boost Katie's ratings and "image" with her colleagues. Sarah was man-handled not just "handled" by the McCain people. Enjoy this book. It's a treasure, as is Sarah
