Book Review # 79 Sarah Palin: A New Kind of Leader

Sarah Palin: A New Kind of Leader


Joe Hilley

Book Description: " Explore the leadership principles that made Sarah Palin successful. Our present era demands a new style of leadership that transcends political affiliation and party lines. In an age that values relationship over authority and instant information over accuracy, breadth of knowledge and depth of conviction are prized commodities. Governor Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) brings both of those qualities to her new role as candidate for the vice presidency of the United States. Her familiarity with a broad range of issues and her strong moral center are just two of the leadership traits that have allowed Palin to organize and focus her efforts in elected office. Exploring themes from her career in polities, her life as a hockey mom, and her strongly held Christian faith, author Joe HIlley's biographical leadership study of Sarah Palin explores the leadership principles that have catapulted her into the national spotlight and explains how she models a fresh paradigm of leadership that will guide our nation through the twenty-first century."

I had initially wanted to read this book when it came out during the presidential campaign and father bought it for me for christmas. I didn't get around to reading it until now. It is well written, covering Sarah Palin's life and involvement in politics. Surprisingly I already knew much of the information having watched several televised shows about her. The book is a accurate depiction of a down to earth, hard working, intelligent woman, who gained experience, like most people do, through hard work and diligence. What you see is what you get.
