This Is Herman Cain!: Book Review


Title of Book:

This is Herman Cain: My Journey to the White House!   ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

Author: Herman Cain

My favorite quotes from the book:

  • Chapter 6 New Challenges & Achievement – Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; for the LORD they God is with thee withersoever thou goest.
  • When you allow yourself to dream, you look at at mound of clay & see a masterpiece. You look at a glass of water half-empty as a glass half-filled. When you dream again, you are able to recognize that problems are merely opportunities that could unlock the doors to your success! When you dream again, you view today as the first day of the rest of your life!
  • Why do I, a son of the segregated South, refuse to think of myself as a “victim” of racism?
  • My American dream entailed working hard &  making $20,000 a year, but I  surpassed that goal  and became a corporate CEO, a regional chairman of the Federal Reserve, a president of the Restaurant Association, an author & an Atlanta talk show host before retiring at sixty-five on cruise control. And then I become a presidential aspirant.
  • “We need leadership, not more position-ship. God bless America!
  • I made a mental vow: I’m going to be myself. Remember, I don’t do canned responses. I believe people can smell them a mile away. I’m spontaneous. I’m who I am.
  • We must also provide our men and women in uniform-the treasure of our nation-our veterans, and their families with the benefits they deserve for their sacrifices on our behalf. These heroes have served us. We must never forget to serve them.

My Overview: What is it in my DNA that years ago prompted me to forgo the ease of cruise control and take on the enormous challenge of doing my part toward making America a better place for my granddaughter and the generations to come? Why do I, a son of the segregated South, refuse to think of myself as a “victim” of racism? What is it that motivates me to insist on defining my identity in terms of “ABC”—as being American first, black second, and Conservative third? Just who is Herman Cain? And how did I get this way? Just a hint: it may have had something to do with lessons learned from my parents, Lenora and Luther Cain, Jr. —From the back cover

My Thoughts & Comments: From the mathematics of pepperoni & fast food delivery, came a man who would dare to believe that he could run for President of the United States, Herman Cain shares his story of his journey to the White House!

Take the journey with Herman Cain, as he shares his life's aspirations with you & how he has successfully turned companies around that were literally headed toward bankruptcy! How his belief in God, family and America activated & prepared him for the call that God's has placed on his life! Discover how he overcame every obstacle that life has thrown at him, including Stage 4 Cancer!

On January 22, 1999 a few minutes before 10:00pm, Herman Cain held his first born grandchild, Celena in his arms. As he held this precious little miracle in his arms, he came to the realization that he would use his time & talent that God had blessed him with to move from the corporate world to the political arena! He was determined in his heart that he could help make this a better world for her sake and for all those children that were coming into the world.

Will the man who surpassed all of the peoples understanding have a chance to sit in the seat of the President of the United States?1 Corinthians 1:27 tells us; But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty. Only time will tell?

My personal message to Herman Cain: Mr. Cain I want to tell you that I will be praying for you & those that are influencing you, as you go forward in your journey. You mentioned in your book that maybe your middle name should have been David! Many ordinary people were used by God to do His will and to thwart the plan of the enemy throughout history! I pray that as God’s hand is upon you & you move by his leading & guidance that he will give you favor & use you mightily! America is on life support & in desperate need of godly leadership! A leader who will not compromise or back down & will lead America back to be the great country that she is called to be! I pray Mr. Cain, that you will be that man!
