No American leader has accomplished more for his state than Governor Ron DeSantis. Now he reveals how he did it.

He played baseball for Yale, graduated with honors from Harvard Law School, and served in Iraq and in the halls of Congress. But in all these places, Ron DeSantis learned the same lesson: He didn’t want to be part of the leftist elite.

His heart was always for the people of Florida, one of the most diverse and culturally rich states in the union. Since becoming governor of the Sunshine State, he has fought—and won—battle after battle, defeating not just opposition from the political left, but a barrage of hostile media coverage proclaiming the end of the world.

When he implemented COVID-19 policies based on evidence and focused on freedoms, the press launched a smear campaign against him, yet Florida’s economy thrived, its education system outperformed the nation, and Florida’s COVID mortality rate for seniors was lower than that in thirty-eight states. When he enacted policies to keep leftist political concepts like critical race theory and woke gender ideology out of Florida’s classrooms, the media demagogued his actions, but parents across Florida rallied to his cause. Dishonest attacks from the media don’t deter him. In fact, DeSantis keeps racking up wins for Floridians. In 2022, the governor delivered a historic, record-setting victory, winning by nearly 20 points and more than 1.5 million votes.

A firsthand account from the blue-collar boy who grew up to take on Disney and Dr. Fauci, The Courage to Be Free delivers something rare from an elected leader: stories of victory. This book is a winning blueprint for patriots across the country. And it is a rallying cry for every American who wishes to preserve our liberties.

Clearly articulates a complex political landscape. The Constitution has been watered down or forgotten by many politicians and citizens alike. But not by this man.

This was an excellent book in the sense it explained several very controversial issues in full. All we hear from media are sound bites. This book explains the before and the why it needed to be changed, the change and why there was a change and the result of the change. It has excellent explanations on how the legislature, governor (executive branch) and courts (judicial branch) all work to set and enforce the laws of FL. DeSantis does a great job of pointing out the differences of how FL operates differently than the US and that all states have their own ways of governing but emphasizing, that is how our founding fathers designed it. Ron is an okay narrator but I was glad he only did the prologue and epilogue. Good read and a great civics lesson.

Desantis makes the listener feel what made him and what he's made of. The book is clearly meant to Kickstart his presidential campaign, and it succeeds! #DeSantis2024
