The rising star of the race for the 2012 Republican nomination reads his eagerly-awaited memoir.
Herman Cain’s candidacy is outpacing such high profile candidates as Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, and Tim Pawlenty in growth and support, registering third in overall popularity among Republican voters in a recent Gallup poll. In this memoir, Cain answers his most often-asked question: Who is Herman Cain?
Growing up poor in the segregated south, Cain describes how he pulled himself out of the depths of poverty and became successful. Through college, a stint as a Navy mathematician, working at Pillsbury and becoming its youngest ever vice president, and eventually serving as CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Herman Cain relied on self-motivation and determination to get where he is today. His strong beliefs and values have aided him in his career and personal life, and he reveals his self-made secrets in My Name Is Herman Cain! Motivated by his children and grandchildren, and his many supporters, Cain announced his candidacy in May 2011, and the nation watches as he joins the growing number of Republicans duking it out for their party's nomination in 2012.
