A Mormon in the Whitehouse
A Mormon in the White House?: 10 Things Every American Should Know about Mitt Romney
by Hugh Hewitt (Author), Regnery Publishing, Inc. (March 12, 2007)
Review From Publishers Weekly
According to author and radio personality Hewitt, Mitt Romney-billionaire venture capitalist, consummate family man, gifted and media-savvy politician-would be unstoppable in the coming presidential race were it not for one niggling line on his resumé: he's a Mormon. In this unashamedly partisan volume, Hewitt attempts to refute the claim that no Mormon could get elected President (along with any other claim that might be made against Romney) while analyzing the former Massachusetts governor's biography and burnishing his conservative and leadership credentials. Hewitt is an agreeable, if inelegant, writer, wise enough to take detours (such as an edifying primer on Mormon history and thought) that stave off tedium. He spends far more time extolling Romney than excoriating his Republican and Democratic opponents. This is an efficient and effective exercise in political hagiography.

Turnaround Turnaround: Crisis, Leadership, and the Olympic Games
by Mitt Romney (Author), Timothy Robinson (Author) , Regnery Publishing (June 8, 2007)
From Publishers Weekly
It's not well remembered, but the planned 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics were scandal-ridden and in complete disarray until Romney took over as CEO in early 1999. In this management primer, he makes his rescue job seem very simple: he came in, displayed a positive attitude and hired competent, committed people, and the result was a successful Olympics that few had thought possible. That same attitude is displayed throughout this book, as Romney is quick to credit those around him for the games' success. He's thorough as he details how he revamped the budget, kept costs down and marketed the games to sponsors. His self-deprecating honesty is refreshing and appealing. As he writes after emphasizing the importance of selling the games: "I know there are people out there who love to sell, but it is far from my favorite thing." He's also honest about his criticism of the Salt Lake City leaders who were tainted by their efforts to buy votes from International Olympic Committee members to get the city the games. The same traits that make Romney, now the governor of Massachusetts, an unobtrusive leader don't always serve the book; some readers will want to see more sparks fly. But those looking for a training manual in how to run a high-profile organization will be rewarded.

Hugh Hewitt's a conservative pundit and talk-radio host who’s taken it upon himself to champion Mitt Romney’s candidacy by defending his Mormon faith. 

His book A Mormon in the Whitehouse is a favorite by LDS members and promoted heavily at BYU; students are encouraged to spread the word through creative media on YouTube… but of course there’s no funding connection between the LDS Church / BYU and Mitt Romney. Maybe it's just coincidence?
