Nothing new but self promote for a failed politician. Agree that it was written which meant that her ghost writer did a good job (Obama's two books were likely the only books written by the author himself.)

Readers would learn more from the mass media, including Palin's interviews on network news, like with Katie:

Rogue Facts: Media Matters' ongoing list of falsehoods in Palin's memoir

This book was well written in what I felt was an honest voice. I admire Mrs. Palin for being a wife, mother and public servant. I recommend reading this memoire.

Fantastically written book from the perspective of the vice-presidential nominee. It was incredibly refreshing to hear her voice and her opinions about the events and circumstances that surrounded her governorship and nomination. She writes extremely well and several times I laughed out loud. I aspire to be like her and I only pray that I'll have the same, if not more impact, as she did in the little time she was given. A must have for my collection!

Whether you agree with Palin's political opinions or not, this book is well written and a great story of a strong female leader who has gone through serious scrutiny and stayed true to herself regardless.
