Win a signed copy of 'Pence: The Path to Power'
Enter to win a signed copy of Pence: The Path to Power, the first definitive biography of Mike Pence. In the book, journalist Andrea Neal explores Pence’s trajectory from conservative talk radio host to vice president, revealing his journey to the White House and the events and people that influenced his political beliefs.
According to USA Today, "the biography provides a good overview of the path the politically ambitious Pence took to get to his current position, including his early influences, key mentors, successes and setbacks."
“I have known Pence since his early days in Congress,” explained columnist Cal Thomas, “He is a man of great personal character and professional integrity, and his life is guided by his strong faith in God and commitment to his family.”
“Pence: The Path to Power is essential to understanding how Mike Pence's zig-zagging path between politics and conservative media shaped him and his philosophies,” said political writer Ryan Alessi, “Andrea Neal describes the enigma of the 48th vice president as: 'How could a biblically-based Christian so readily align himself with a man prone to flout the most recognized rules of civility?' Her book, rich with anecdotes and vivid examples, provides the context for us to answer that question.”
While some other accounts may offer a partisan spin on Pence’s life story, Neal interviews friends, family, staff, former teachers, and politicians on both sides of the aisle to build a multifaceted, fact-based portrait of the self-described Christian, conservative, and Republican–in that order–from his beginnings in a large Irish Catholic family in Columbus, Indiana, through the scandals of his first campaigns, and to his time beside Donald Trump. Neal tackles all aspects of Pence’s career: from the early days when “he seemed like the kind of person that people hoped would get into politics” (Columbus Republic reporter John Schorg) to the controversy and protests around the Religious Freedom Restoration Act while he was governor of Indiana.
