    In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world’s. Governments such as China and a newly-robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and Islam continues its dangerous rise. Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded.

    "Chapter3 stretches facts, some of which are untrue"
    Overall

    At least it streches facts about international affairs with Putin's Russia that "never returns favors". Two examples from the book are untrue:
    1. U.S. agreed to not install missiles in Poland (less than 400 miles from Russia! - unbelievable, think about the Cuban crisis in 1960s), in exchange for Russia not installing missiles in Kaliningrad (more than 4000 miles from the U.S.), i.e. this specific favor was returned generously
    2. It was the U.S. side that stalled the negotiations on the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty recently.

    I wonder if the China and Iran arguments or facts may also be a bit exaggerated in any way for any reason, but I cannot comment on those.

    Otherwise the book is extremely good at explaining the rationale behind the modern U.S. conservative position on important issues - I never understood them as fully as I do now. Very well done! Thank you!
