Publisher's Description

Few politicians have risen to national prominence as quickly as Marco Rubio. Here is the full story of his unlikely journey.
 
Florida Senator Marco Rubio electrified the 2012 Republican National Con­vention by telling the story of his parents, who were struggling immigrants from Cuba. They embraced their new country and taught their children to appreciate its unique opportunities. Every sacrifice they made over the years, as they worked hard at blue-collar jobs in Miami and Las Vegas, was for their children.
 
Young Marco grew up dreaming about football, not politics. In this fas­cinating memoir, he reveals how he ended up running for the West Miami City Commission, and then the Florida House of Representatives. In just six years he rose to Speaker of the Florida House. He then won his U.S. Senate campaign as an extreme long shot.
 
Now Rubio speaks on the national stage about the better future that’s possible if we return to our founding principles. In that vision, as in his fam­ily’s story, Rubio proves that the American Dream is still alive for those who pursue it.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

    This review was written for An American Son: A Memoir.
    I am so grateful to God for leading me to find and read this book. I have learned so much about Rubio, and therefore, am favorably impressed and encouraged by his straightforwardness, humble dedication to his responsibilities to his office, his love for his country, his love for and dependence upon God, and his gratitude for the privilege of being an American son. His love for and dedication to his family is most commendable. I have come to appreciate the great burdens a politician assumes; i.e., fund-raising, sacrifice of time with family, unkind and untrue personal attacks, and to realize that they are all endured because he desires to make a difference in the lives of others. Too, his appreciation for the privilege of being an American citizen who has escaped the losses his parents and grandparents endured were clearly defined for me; giving me a greater appreciation for the hearts of our Cuban-American citizens.
