Description


Against All Odds is the extraordinary personal story of the man who rose up to meet the challenge of terrific opposition and become one of America's most promising new political figures--Senator Scott Brown. Brown is famous for succeeding popular Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy after Kennedy's death in 2010--but, as he reveals in a compelling memoir reminiscent of Sarah Palin's Going Rogue and Clarence Thomas's My Grandfather's Son, his experiences with struggle and achievement go back a lifetime.

Praise For…


“Powerful stuff. . . .This isn’t your typical memoir. It is brutally honest, difficult to read, and important.”
-The Tucson Citizen

“A fresh, compelling memoir of a childhood that could have led to a miserable life, but didn’t. . . .Brown’s straightforward narrative makes for a good read.”
-Louisville Courier Journal

“A[n] engaging autobiography. . . . A rags-to-riches narrative that sometimes recalls Horatio Alger. . . . Lyricism and occasional symbolic richness emerge in these pages.”
-The New York Review of Books

“Dramatic. . . . Poignant. . . . Scott Brown’s life could have veered horribly wrong so many times, as he amply demonstrates in his disquieting memoir. . . . A reader will get an everything’s-finally-right-with-the-world thrill from his success in life.
-The Washington Post
