"We live in an age in which traditional beliefs have been attenuated, ridiculed, and mocked. We desperately need leaders who will defend them — and just as important, we need leaders who can explain why they are worth defending. Which is why Gordon Hinckley’s book is so valuable. Timely, intelligent, practical, and readable, Standing for Something is an important contribution to the national discussion."
–William J. Bennett, editor, The Book of Virtues
"I absolutely love this book! Every chapter breathes profound wisdom, insight, and optimism. Articulated by one of the inspired leaders of our day, these ten timeless values, if lived, will literally heal our hearts, our homes, our country, our world."
–Stephen R. Covey, author, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
"President Gordon B. Hinckley has written a wise and inspiring book. He looks at all that ails our society today and offers the most powerful cure: faith in God and the virtues that emanate from it. His voice in this book is prophetic and full of love. People of all religions will benefit from reading Standing for Something, and society will gain too, because this book should lead its readers to stand for something."
–Senator Joseph I. Leiberman
