Gary Bauer sought the Republican nomination for President in 2000, and this book Doing Things Right, is largely a result of that experience. As such, the tone of the book makes his stance on issues quite apparent, and reads very much like a long campaign speech. The book is filled with flowery rhetoric that, like all political tomes, seems to glamorize the author’s hardscrabble youth, and the many positive influences in his life, in the face of an otherwise mundane middle class upbringing.
