Format: Kindle Edition
This book has three distinct themes.

First, it's an excellent account of New Zealand's transition from a first-past-the-post (FPP) electoral system to a mixed-member-proportional (MMP) scheme. Boyko's background as a journalist really shows here as he gives a good report of the facts well supported by interviews with key people involved in the switch.

Second, it argues for similar electoral changes in the United States, Boyko's home country. It does a reasonably good job on this front.

Finally, the book describes the author's personal journey as he explored politics and the electoral process. This is interesting, but overall is the weakest of the three threads. It may turn out to be a better story after Boyko spends more time working on the problem and then takes the time to write more strongly about it.

My primary criticism of the book is that it would benefit from the attention of a good editor. There are places where the arguments get a but jumbled, and at times the same quote appears more than once - relevant in both places, but perhaps some better organisation would have avoided this. Also, the three streams of the book don;t always seem to coexist well.

In spite of these criticisms, the book is still worth reading for anyone interested in electoral reforms in the US or in the history of those reforms in NZ.
