Publisher's Summary

The Way Forward challenges conventional thinking, outlines his political vision for 2014 and beyond, and shows how essential conservatism is for the future of our nation.

Beginning with a careful analysis of the 2012 election - including a look at the challenge the GOP had in reaching a majority of voters and the prevalence of identity politics - Ryan examines the state of the Republican party and dissects its challenges the country to certain ruin.

Culminating in a plan for the future, The Way Forward argues that the Republican Party is and must remain a conservative party, emphasizing going forward.

The Way Forward also offers a detailed critique of not only President Obama but of the progressive movement as a whole - its genesis, its underlying beliefs and philosophies, and how its policies are steering conservatism in a way that demonstrates how it can modernize and appeal to both our deepest concerns and highest ideals.

great book. .. missing Ryan

I loved the book. It provides interesting insight into Ryan the man and politician without being an autobiography. this book is 100% about Ryans hopes and plans for the republican party and our country with just enough insight to how and why he has arrived at those conclusions. this should be a template for every politicians statements and should be read carefully by every American regardless of party affiliation

GREAT BOOK with a GREAT VISION for America

Paul Ryan does a fantastic job of in explaining was in wrong with the path the our country is currently on and why the solution is in empowering the people and not government. He faults the Republican party for being ineffective in selling this message to ALL Americans. This is where change has to happen for the party.

This book is a great read, has a great story, insightful and gives you a sense that there is hope for our country. There is one major negative in reading this book-- you keep thinking about how different our country would be, if Congressman Ryan and Romney were in office.

Wished that Paul had read it himself....

Any additional comments?

A personal statement such as this book is best read by the author, not a paid reader that lacks the full force and sentiment of the author. No passion comes through...
