1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Patti Chadwick VINE VOICE on November 5, 2008
Format: Paperback
In light of this year's election, this book was extremely interesting. Royce Flippin did a great job of picking pieces to publish in this volume that give a wide variety of perspective. This book gives full coverage of the presidential candidates and conventions from many different sources. It was an provocative read.
