    Everyone cheats. Cuts corners. Tells lies. Maybe it was different once. Not anymore. If you want to succeed nowadays, you have to make compromises. Right? Wrong. You can succeed at the highest levels, without sacrificing the principles that make life worth living.

    In Winners Never Cheat Huntsman tells you how he did it, and how you can, too. This audiobook is about remembering why you work, and why you were chosen to lead. It's about finding the bravery to act on what you know is right and building teams with the same courage. It's about winning. The right way.

    Overall

    This book is written like a list of all the good choices Jon Huntsman has ever made. Although full of many truisms, the book was very boring and hard to get through. I could not tell who his intended audience was. If he is writing to people who already live these standards the book is just a nice review...yep it pays to live an honest life. If he is writing to his peers-modern day business men, his tone is often condescending. If he is writing to young people it is very dry, boring, and reads like a lecture.

  • Going Rogue: An American Life

    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.

    Overall

    I had to read this book for book group. I was not excited about it. I did not know much about Sarah Palin, but I know there was just something I didn't like about her. I gave the book a shot. It was good to learn more about her as a person. This book reads as part memoir and part defensive statement of her actions. Although I respect her as a woman, and woman who took risks and was confident. I personally think she ruined a good thing, by agreeing to run for Vice President. Sometimes putting your political aspirations above everything else is not always a good thing...even if you drag your family along for the ride.
