NEW YORK - A new book about Mitt Romney promises a direct take on the leading Republican presidential contender.
Threshold Editions, a conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster, announced Wednesday that it's publishing "Mitt Romney In His Own Words" in May. The book will be a paperback original and offer quotes on "countless hot-button issues."
Romney's evolving positions on health care, abortion and other issues have been criticized by conservatives. Threshold spokeswoman Jean Anne Rose says the new book will be "pro"-Romney.
Romney's quotes were compiled by Phillip Hines, who also worked on "LeBron James in His Own Words."
Romney's own book, "No Apology," came out in 2010 from St. Martin's Press.
