Publisher's Summary

Ron Paul is an American author, physician, and former politician. He served as the US representative for Texas' 14th and 22nd congressional districts. He represented the 22nd congressional district from 1976 to 1977 and from 1979 to 1985, and then represented the 14th congressional district, which included Galveston, from 1997 to 2013. On three occasions, he sought the presidency of the United States: as the Libertarian Party nominee in 1988 and as a candidate in the Republican primaries of 2008 and 2012. Paul is a critic of the federal government's fiscal policies, especially the existence of the Federal Reserve and the tax policy, as well as the military-industrial complex and the War on Drugs. Paul has also been a vocal critic of mass surveillance policies such as the USA PATRIOT Act and the NSA surveillance programs. Paul was the first chairman of the conservative PAC Citizens for a Sound Economy and has been characterized as the "intellectual godfather" of the Tea Party movement.

A native of the Pittsburgh suburb of Green Tree, Pennsylvania, Paul is a graduate of Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine, where he earned his medical degree. He served as a flight surgeon in the US Air Force from 1963 to 1968. He worked as an obstetrician-gynecologist from the 1960s to the 1980s. He became the first Representative in history to serve concurrently with a son or daughter in the Senate when his son, Rand Paul, was elected to the US Senate from Kentucky in 2010.

    "A concise primer on a great man"

    This is nice concise primer on the life of Dr. Ron Paul. I'm a big fan of Dr. Paul, but learned a lot about his early life from this audio book.

    Story
    "A Look at the Man Behind the Vision"

    Ron Paul is a man with a vision. That vision is to restore the American ideal of ordered liberty to our republic. This audio offers a short, but focused, introduction to the man behind that vision. I highly recommend it to all lovers of liberty.

    Story
    "Ron Paul: A biography"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It's interesting and pleasant to listen to. The reader, Dan Treat, does a very nice job, making the narrative clear and easy to follow. Ron Paul is also a very fascinating, and I am a fan.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ron Paul?

    When he advocated a return to the gold standard and voted against our intervention in Iraq.


    What about Daniel Treat’s performance did you like?

    He is clear, a good reader and has nice vocal inflection. He pauses at the right times (I assume, since I do not have the text to read.) Good job, Dan!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Ron Paul - Freedom Fighter!


    Any additional comments?

    Keep up the good work!
