And so Dan Quayle emerges as a type: the determined mid-level manager. He is competent enough never to be fired, but his earnestness and his eagerness-to-please are precisely what prevent him from ever getting ahead. Like any mid-level manager, Quayle fixates on criticism and schemes for vindication. Many chapters in this book left me with the aftertaste of arrogance or manipulation.

And here is the finest moment in all of Standing Firm: Dan Quayle has just given a speech on family values to the Commonwealth Club of California.

Standing Firm" is Nixonian in another sense. Like RN's "Six Crises," it aims to explain, expiate and learn from political failure-and clear the way for a comeback. Quayle believes that writing the book distilled several critical lessons. You've got to sit down and answer their questions. You can't let others do the talking for yo. Two: "Don't hire a pollster to be a decision maker," as the Bush-Quayle campaign did in 1992. Three: value your instincts.

I didn’t choose this book, so much as it chose me, and I am so glad that it did. I got the chance to meet Dan Quayle a few weeks ago at an event in Atlanta. The experience was really special and I decided to read the book. I am a sucker for executive branch memoirs (usually those of former Presidents) but I had never read one about the George H W Bush administration. I was a kid when all of this happened but I remember most of the key events including the Gulf War, the fall of the Soviet Union / Berlin Wall, Rodney King riots, Clarence Thomas confirmation, and Election of 1992. Hearing them told by a VP was different than I am used to and I enjoyed the change of pace. Quayle got a very bad wrap from the national media, one which thronged him throughout his career. The humiliation that he endured is enough to make most people turn away from public service at the highest levels which I think is a shame. While he certainly deserved some of the bad press that he got, he will always be remembered for his more colorful gaffes rather than the numerous accomplishments that he made as a statesman and I can really emphasize with him. The book, if you can find a copy, is really pretty cool.

Upon reading Sane Citizens review probably a person who never read this book.I decided to write this review!Does not every one make mistakes?He said himself he was not a good speller and said Potatoe was spelled this way on the card the school gave him why else would he have said it.I have all three of Mr.Quayle's books two copies of this one.I believe in my opinion every person who is a true conservative should read at least one of his books.Also how many people in this country are bold enough to stand up against the evil in Hollywood.Though you may or may not agree with me Hollywood is no longer making movies that are rated for all ages.Family television shows such as Leave it to Beaver and Tha Andy Griffith Show are no longer made.The crime shows now are no longer like Dragnet and Adam-12which stand up for the respect of our law enforcement officers but run them down can't you see where I am going with this.Do you want to know why we have such low moral standards it is what is being shown on television.You can not tell me television does not influence you.You see an add for pizza the next day you get one.Young kids see tv shows about crime and killing that is the life they want.You never see an add for alchohol on SUPER BOWL SUNDAY that shows a funeral at the end of it,or a car crash,prison,or the gutter.I want to say this.GUN CONTROL WILL NOT STOP CRIME TAKE THE JUNK OFF OF TELEVISION AND SHOW WHOLESOME MOVIES THAT WILL STOP OR AT THE VERY LEAST SLOW DOWN CRIME!FOR ANY POLICE OFFICERS OR SOLDIERS WHO READ THIS REVIEW I WANT TO THANK YOU!!THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE YOU GIVING YOUR LIFE TO THE SERVICE OF AMERICA!THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS REVIEW!!!

Book’s physical quality was decent, pages looked fine along with dust cover. Was hoping it would be slightly in better condition.

Rarely do the media and the entertainmenr business ravage a person as thoroughly as they did Dan Qauyle. Everyone thinks that they know who Quayle is, but by the time that I was done reading this book, I felt as though he were my long lost uncle. His insights are uncompromising and clear, and he places blame where it should be in every instance, sometimes on the media, sometimes on his political opponents, sometimes on President Bush, and sometimes with himself. Quayle is honest with himself and his readers, making no unecessary apologies for the decisions that he has made or the reasons that he made them. He makes no bones about the influences in his life, starting with his God. Once a skeptic, I am now a full-fledged Quayle supporter, and I will patiently explain to anyone who says anything nasty about him that they simply need to find out what they are really talking about before they open their mouth. Reading this book is a good place to start.

Delivered sooner than expected. Well written and engaging.

A good man who was hounded out of his career by those who didn't like what he stood for. He is solid in his values and isn't afraid to tell it like it is when it comes to what is right.

When liberals and "progressives" fear the truth, the will use any means to destroy what is not their propaganda.

This book promotes the use of truth in dealing with going on in the world.
Ignore the stupidity of finding fault with "potatos" and realize he was talking spuds and meant it!

Perhaps it is appropriate that Dan Quayle belongs to the GOP because in his public life he has displayed elephantine qualities-strength, courage,decency,loyalty,love of family and an ability to fight back from adversity. His book, Standing Firm,reflects his values. From the searing media attacks of the 1988 campaign,lack of support from GOP heavyweights like Jim Baker, and the bruising vice -presidential debates of that era, Quayle would have been less than human if he had not been unsettled. He admits that in that early period he quit trusting in himself.For some liberals he would never be trusted. In refusing to bow to trendy positions Quayle continued to attract odium.Yet, in his defence of the traditional family over the 'Murphy Brown position' he espoused eternal values. Some of his critics preferred to concentrate on his incorrect spelling of potato! ( Well, the rest of the English speaking world has always known that Americans are funny spellers-big deal!) In reading this book you quickly discover Quayle is a values-driven politician. Precisely because of the poverty of values amongst today's elites Quayle's views will continue to be ridiculed despite the fact that he articulates the views of middle America. This book give some idea of the challenges and loneliness that a Veep faces,particularly one under constant media pressure. In standing firm to his values Dan Quayle fought back-his performance in the 1992 vice-presidential debate (against Al Gore) mirrored the increased assurance of the man-and this book should be reflected on by his fellow Americans and perhaps those further afield.
