Abstract:

Overview: The first biography of 10-term congressman and internet phenomenon Dr. Ron Paul, this comprehensive volume traces his formative years spent in Pennsylvania; his careers as an obstetrician and, later, a U.S. Air Force flight surgeon; and, finally, his political journey from senator to presidential contender. Known as "Doctor No" for his refusal to spend taxpayer money unnecessarily, Paul repeatedly overcame substantial opposition to become a nationally recognized political figure, and this account of his successes and failures demonstrates exactly what it took to grab the spotlight in American politics. Profiling this ambitious man's quest to defy a media that was determined to ignore him, this compelling portrait also chronicles how Paul's 2008 campaign broke several fundraising records through its innovative use of the internet.
