"Along the way, the story of Gingrich's personal and political problems and triumphs is revealed, from his controversial first divorce and scandalous ethics problems and his early campaign losses. We also see his rise to national prominence and influence, the development of "Newt, Inc." and his involvement in the "necessary revolution." Finally, by detailing Gingrich's life experiences from childhood to adulthood the nature and development of his conservatism is examined."--BOOK JACKET.
