    1. The best part of this book was that "get off my lawn" was actually part of one of the chapter titles. This book is basically one giant "get off my lawn" to people who aren't like the author. As a DC native, gunless non-Christian, Ivy League graduate (degree paid for by my father's government job), PhD environmental scientist, childless single woman, and two-time Obama voter, I don't even need to be told to stay off this man's lawn, but unfortunately he seems to think that the entire country is h [...]


    2. I saw Mike Huckabee on the Daily Show and the topic in this book was relevant to what I'm currently writing. I don't completely subscribe to right wing/conservative politics, nor am I extremely liberal. However, he made some fair points about how republicans and people of faith or 'country folks' are portrayed in the media. He does get a little scathing about how lame he thinks 'liberal coastal elites' are. But all in all, Mike Huckabee comes across as likable and fairly sensible. Even if I don' [...]


    3. Titles more accurate (but, admittedly, less catchy) than "God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy":"Huckabee Dislikes a Thing Because It Isn't Old-Fashioned and/or Southern Enough""Why Huckabee is Different from All Those Other Republicans""Huckabee Comments on Political, Social, and Cultural Issues While Ending Every Paragraph with a "Funny" One-Liner""Contradictions, Condemnation, Christianity, and Communism"Actually, that last one might work.



    4. I'd rather listen to Mike Huckabee fill in on bass in a Creed cover band than listen to the man blather on for 8 hours


    5. God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy by Mike Huckabee“God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy" is an interesting look at the foundation and source of Mike Huckabee’s political philosophy. Not ashamed of his roots, former governor Mike Huckabee introduces the masses to the people for whom God, guns, grits, and gravy makes sense. Find out why this progressive reviewer though finding Huckabee at times quite charming disagrees with his outdated theocratic agenda. This accessible 271-page book includes nineteen chapt [...]


    6. It was bound to happen eventually, and I write as one who has slogged his way through the ouevre of Philippa Gregory and other historical romance writers. But I couldn't finish this piece of dreck. As historical romances go --- and don't kid yourself, that's what ole Huck is a-writin', this one is really dreadful.He starts with a fallacious premise about the past. God knows a lot of authors in this genre do that, but people who fantasize about Marie Antoinette or the Romanovs aren't likely to ca [...]


    7. Do not buy this book; I got it from the library. I wish I could have given it 0 stars, but that's not an option. First, no one this parochial should be President of the United States. It's OK that he really enjoys grits; it should be equally OK that I dislike grits. This guy says "how can an eating place that fancies itself fancy have the audacity to open its doors and not have biscuits and gravy or grits on the breakfast menu?" Because not everyone likes grits. And whether or not you want to ad [...]


    8. I won this audiobook. First off, I gave this book an honest chance, and looked at it from every angle I could think of. secondly, I think it is important to note that it is actually read by the author, not an actor. It is important because it sounds like it is being read by somebody who is lying. I am not saying it sounds like it is being read by a bad voice actor. Nope, it sounds like an intelligent man is purposefully saying things that are false in order to make people happy. He sounds like e [...]


    9. Huckabee, is entertaining in a folksy manner of Will Rodgers. However Huk, uses the hyperbole of humor to pander to his base,Bubbaville, while demonizing his opposition, bubbleville. So even though he's cute; he does little more than promote divisiveness. He plays the victim card to the extreme: religion and Christianity in particular is under attack. All without ever recognizing that it's just the sanctimonious Christians that are being criticized. Most Americans believe that Christians (the he [...]


    10. I can give this book 2 separate reviews, one on content, and the other on Huckabee's platform that he puts forward in this book. Governor Huckabee is funny in this book. He says a lot of things that not many in my generation would agree with but are true. America has lost its morals, its drive and ambition, and good 'ol fashioned neighborly love. Governor Huckabee is from a place where things are still pretty simple. The people in the lands of god, guns, grits, and gravy don't like bug governmen [...]


    11. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee writes about concerning topics as talked about on his Fox News show. Huckabee talks about ideas that I agree with such as: too much government spying and a tendency of some in government to over-regulate and interfere with the lives of Americans. Huckabee’s simplistic premise is that the United States consists of two types of people, the Bubbas who are decent, God-fearing, Bible-believing, Christians, and the people in Bubbleville who are crude, know-it-a [...]


    12. Here is a perfect example of my feeling about this book: I was preparing to write this review and I thought one of the Bookshelf/tab options was "shoot self."This book is h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e. He complains that the people in "fly-over country" are a mystery. That they suffer from incorrect stereotypes, then he proceeds to label the people that live in coastal cities with stereotypes that hail from the same information source, television. What a jerk. I picked up the book, because I thought maybe he h [...]


    13. Republican Reteric in a Independent package. If I could use Emojis to explain my deep hatred for this i would. It would be one of those little piles of poo. It was awful it was so awful. I won it in a giveaway or i would never have even picked it up. Let me tell you if you would like this book.Do you hate gay people?Do you think America was better off 100 years ago?Do you think the government is a big scary menace who is going to steal things from you?Do you have a confederate flag sticker or ac [...]


    14. Reading this book reminded why I love the Governor so much. He is direct, honest but respectful and courteous to those who may disagree with him. He offered clear explanations for the reasons he believes what he believes and why a majority of "fly-over country" folks share those beliefs. So much of what he said in this book about growing up southern made me smile because I know exactly what he's talking about. This was a very, very good book.


    15. Down-state IllinoisGlad that someone in the know had the guts to tell it like it is without holding back. Usually the media crushes or crucifies those who speak out. Clear examples would include : Phil Robertson, James Dobson, and Sarah Palin. Not very many people I know would take on the groups mentioned in your book. Will recommend this book to all and hope that another book would come out about Hillary before 2016.


    16. I love God, guns are one of the greatest inventions, grits sound good, and gravy is to die for. This is one of my new recommendable books. The book contains life lessons, spiritual lessons, food lessons, and a healthy dose of sarcasm and jokes. The many of life stories are interesting and keep your attention. For being a teenager a majority of the lessons that are taught could apply to me in a way. Good overall books good for a summer book and a learning book.


    17. I enjoyed this book of Huckabees more than I thought I would. I found other books of his to be boring. In this book, he compares "Bubba-villes" versus the "Bubble-villes" (the power centers of the country like New York, Washington, and LA). He gave great examples from popular culture about hot topics such as homosexuality, gun control, the infamous discussion about Beyoncé being a role model for girls, etc.


    18. I like all his ideas. He knows the common folk and isn't one of the elite, he knows what the average middle income person wants and needs. He's honest and has a lot of common sense - which isn't out there with our current politicians. Wish there were a lot more like him. An excellent book and an easy read. I love his comparisons of DC, NY, and LA to the people of the "flyover" land. Those people have no clue as to how the rest of us live!


    19. Pretty much what I expected. If you're a republican you'll probably enjoy the book. If you're a democrat you probably won't. I would love to see a flat tax, but I don't ever see that happening. I would love to see term limits on senators and the house, but I don't see that ever happening. Huckabee presents great ideas, but I don't see them ever happening because gov't has become so huge.


    20. God, Guns, Grits and Gravy is a fairly typical offering from a presidential candidate. The book is a glorification of the southern lifestyle, but reads mostly like a set of talking points on issues that Governor Huckabee wants to ride to the White house. But it's hard to see how railing against reality TV helps him get there. He also didn't do himself any favors with me by placing my hometown of Sioux Fall, S.D. in Iowa.


    21. Honestly, I generally hate politics and any books about politics. But this was not too bad--actually, it was pretty good! Huckabee is really funny and I enjoyed reading about his Southern Christian values. Plus, he just tells it like he sees it, which seems rare for a politician. No flim-flam here. But, if you disagree with him politically, I can see that rustling a few feathers.


    22. This was a book of common sense. I agreed with most of his views, which are Christian conservative. It makes you wonder how America has deviated from the path set out in the Constitution. We need to be more active in our roles of citizen & not just moan & complain. This book may nudge you that little bit to get involved.


    23. I loved it. So down to earth and says what has been on my mind for many years now. I especially loved the part about the real rednecks towards the end of the book and how they don't like to fight, but!!!!!!!!!!!!. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't read the book. I read it to my long time southern friends and we got a good laugh out of a very serious subject.


    24. I agree with him on a lot of positions such as reducing welfare bureaucracy or as he calls it, the "poverty industry" in order to get more aid directly into people's pockets, term limits for elected officials, no prohibition on campaign financing, simplifying tax code, and protecting the Bill of Rights.


    25. We'll I finished it. It was hard and many of the parts I WHOLLY disagree with. Really no one should be shocked. Some parts I totally agreed with, that will shock many. Overall. It was ok, and I wouldn't suffer through any more of his books, but it was good to stretch my abilities as a reader.


    26. EXCELLENT read! Mike Huckabee has more common sense in his little finger than most politicians have in their entire body! I found his ideas very balanced, fair and logical. Very well written, very thought provoking. Highly recommend this book.


    27. I read a variety of books for multiple politely parties to make sure I am well balanced and gleaning facts from multiple avenues. This is absolutely one of the best autobiographies I have ever read. (Listened to).


    28. Valid points made? Yes. Followed by many stupid comments? Oh yes. I'm pretty sure you're not going to win in politics by alienating everyone that doesn't share your personal beliefs. Nice try Mike, nice try.
