NEW YORK (AP) — A new book about Mitt Romney promises a direct take on the GOP's leading 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.
