A Sampling of Books by Edenridge Press
Mark Edward Taylor
In this short, fascinating book, published exclusively for the Amazon Kindle in the summer of 2013, communications expert Mark Edward Taylor (Ph.D. Northwestern) compares Barack Obama and Mitt Romney as political brands. He contrasts the Democrats’ “compassionate community organizer” with the Republicans’ “missionary CEO.” Taylor concludes that unless something completely unexpected happens between now and the election, Obama will be able to revive his 2008 “devotional” movement to gain enough swing voters to retain the White House. In spite of his political failures, Obama has the charisma that Romney desperately needs. Read more on Amazon.
