It also attempts to answer the question everyone is asking: Could a faithful Mormon really win his party's nomination and then upset the popular, if now struggling, incumbent president, Barack Obama? Drawing on extensive research amassed over more than two decades, including interviews with people who know Romney best-allies and adversaries alike-this book paints a savvy, textured, and revealing portrait of the candidate, his history, family, religion, political beliefs, and strategy. It puts Mitt in context like no other book to date."@en ;
