book by Kaylene Johnson. Sarah : How a Hockey Mom Turned Alaska's Political Establishment Upside Down. Book and media coverage about Sarah Palin.

In 2006, an angel-faced but tough forty-two-year-old former small-town mayor named Sarah Palin became a long-shot candidate for Alaska governor demanding a higher ethical standard in state government. The timing of her reform message and a widening scandal produced a tornado that reshaped the political landscape. Surprising everyone, Palin thumped by wide margins both a sitting governor in the Republican primary election and a former governor in the general election to become Alaska's first female chief executive and its youngest ever. Through the campaign, and early in Palin's first term, the energetic and attractive mother of five achieved near-heroine status in her state. At one point, the new governor's approval rating reached 90 percent, prompting the Fox News Network to describe her as "a Politician with eye-popping integrity" and some national GOP leaders to tout her as a prototype of the "new Republican."

I happened to pick up this book in July (before the VP announcement) while I was in Anchorage. Finally got around to reading it after the announcement.

While it's very interesting to see what formed this dynamic woman (and no matter what your political lean is, you have to admit she has made some remarkable accomplishments), the book is amateurishly written and more of a timeline than a wealth of knowledge.

I enjoyed reading what makes her tick and how she evolved into the woman she is, but would have enjoyed more substance from the writer.

Don't avoid the book, but don't expect an answer to your voting questions.

outstanding in all respects. How different growing up in Alaska is. I did feel in reading the book that she was not realizing that it was her responsibility to speak up as a candidate and not be lead around by the McCain campaign. She should have let them know right on that she was her own person and would control what she did and if that was not good enough for them then they should not put her on the ticket. She took a back seat as a candidate and she should take responsibility for letting that happen. But a great honest book and I think even this shows her honesty as a writer. it was great to read this and also Laura Bush's biography as it really is a great contrast in lives of two great women.

This book might be thin--but it packs a bunch of important information into its pages! I found it very helpful to fill in some of the background information that the mainstream media doesn't want to tell you about Palin. It provides material on how she has stood up against government corruption and abuses in Alaska. Isn't that what we need someone to do in Washington, D.C.?

I found it interesting to read that some of the Alaska media also started running unfair news attacks against her in their attempt to keep the crooked Alaskan politicans in power--but that strategy didn't work up there. I hope and pray it doesn't work down here.

This was written before Miss Sarah was tapped to be Senator McCains running mate so there is no political agenda in the authors writing. This book clearly lays out why the Democratic Party sent 40 lawyers to Alaska to investigate her once her name was announced as the VP candidate. What she did to the good old boy Republican Party, the corruption in the oil industry, and the advancement of her community and then state would make any opposition take notice and run for cover. After reading the book, I was sadden to think of how she was smeared by the left and made out to be the village idiot when actually, she was just a hockey mom wanting to serve her town, state, and country. I am glad that I am no longer a Democrat because if that is how the party treats women who oppose them, then I do not want to be associated with those Saul Alinsky tactics. The author accurately portrayed the real Sarah Palin.

Sarah is a short, conversational look at the governor and VP nominee. The book is enjoyable and informational but doesn't go deep. Don't expect investigative journalism from this book. The book does do a good job of describing the experiences in Palin's life that have shaped the values that drive her decision making.

Many enlivened to the 2008 presidential election by Gov. Palin's participation want to know more about this fresh face that has the left in paroxysms of ad hoc outrage. I wanted to know more, too, especially since she hails from my home state and grew up (in Wasilla) about thirty miles from where I did (in Anchorage).

This book is an enjoyable, friendly, and compelling story of the rise of an Alaskan women to the Governor's mansion. It was written before Gov. Palin became the Vice Presidential nominee. Apparently, it is being republished by a major publisher. This edition is by a small publisher.

This is not an expose or an in-depth assessment of Gov. Palin's personal life or politics. You will not find any psychoanalysis, cultural critique, or political theorizing. It is a homey biography. The broad outlines are of a truly Alaskan (tough, independent) women whose determination and principles led her into political leadership and to challenge some of the major political players in Alaska.

Readers will become more informed about the Alaskan way of life, which is quite alien to many in "the lower forty-eight," as we say. Alaskans love the outdoors, its scenery and wildlife. They often hunt, fish, climb, and sky. It is an oil-rich state with a significant population of native Alaskans from various tribes. (Gov. Palin is married to a man who is half native Alaskan.) Those who write off Gov. Palin as "the new governor of a sparsely populated state" (the Democrats' talking point) will find that governing Alaskans is anything but easy. The state brings its own unique challenges and requires real savvy from its leaders.

I'm sure several books will be written about Sarah Palin in the years to come--and from every possible angle. She is a compelling figure and may be in the political theater (I hope) for years to come. This book, though, will take its place as a matter-of-fact chronicle of an unlikely ascent to public service.
Mom insist or me getting this book for her. She read it over two days and did not want to put it down. She has never asked for Hillary's book
