Summary

One year ago, Sarah Palin burst onto the national political stage like a comet. Yet even now, few Americans know who this remarkable woman really is.
As chief executive of America's largest state, Sarah Palin had built a record as a reformer who pushed through changes other politicians only talked about: energy independence, ethics reform, and the biggest private-sector energy 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 brought Big Oil to heel.
She was a Main Street American woman: a working mom, wife of a blue-collar union man, and the mother of five children. But as the presidential campaign unfolded, Palin became a lightning rod for both praise and criticism. And few 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.

Undecided

Not sure if I admire Sarah Palin or think she was misguided. She has been fiercely loyal to John McCain in this which I like and seems to have taken everything in her stride. In another time her ticket may have come in. I like that she read it herself so there can be no mis quotes. I don't agree with all of her politics and the book is more of an overview with reasons why things were done the way they were but I do believe that morally she is a good person and that comes across in the book.

Needed unabridged

Abridged version jumped around too much. Was very difficult to follow in places. Enjoyed hearing Sarah read her book. Just wish it had been unabridged version.

Lost interest

I loved listening to Sarah Palin talk about life in Alaska, but when she started getting into the political heart of it, I lost interest and haven't finished it.
