There are 16 interesting chapters, some riveting, some exasperating, some will make you mad, plus excellent pictures. An epilogue and notes for fact-checking are included. The tragic events of 9/11 changed our country and President Bush and his cabinet. Dick Cheney has earned the right to defend himself from years of media bashing so the average person (like me) can be the judge of him, to some degree. I certainly feel he loves this country.
Many questions remain unanswered. There is very little about Cheney's years with Halliburton. He discusses his family, travels, fishing and hunting hobbies, and his "best friends". He begins his memoir with 9/11 and the awfulness of it - the shock of it - and how he and everyone in the administration reacted in the emergency. It isn't until much later in the memoir as the "road to Iraq" is explained from his point of view, that you will perhaps have questions still needing answers. He explains also how both parties worked together on the "war on terror". Prepare for surprises. Both parties are first of all, Americans.
Having also lived 70 years and having read dozens of books about every administration since Washington, I compared this memoir to previously published books by Bush administration staff. Surprise!Read more ›
For the inquisitive reader who would like to actually understand the prewar intelligence on Iraq and how/why the Bush-Cheney administration took America to war, consider "Hubris" by Michael Isikoff & David Corn. It's a well researched and supported account of the thinking behind the war, what the administration did to convince the American public to support it, and how accurate the administrations' claims turned out to be once the war was underway and the intelligence could be verified (or disproved).
Dick Cheney and President Bush have taken tremendous heat from just about everybody who holds both of them accountable for what seems like some poor decision making although history will have something to say about that. The lens through which we see history has a strange way of changing the facts and the conclusions, once the distance brought by time goes into effect and it will be the same for Vice President Cheney. We don't know if history will be kind or angry with the Vice President, we do know it will be different.
In his book "In Our Time", the Vice President gives his side of the story. Like all biography it is both self-serving, and overly complementary. Let us make no mistake about it, you expect bias in an autobiography as opposed to the pen of an historian, and so let us begin. This is the story of an extraordinary American who has led an extraordinary life experiencing world changing events first hand where he had influence. Having been a player in many of these same events I can attest that Dick Cheney is one of the smartest men to occupy public life in the last half century.Read more ›

Surely legal deferments are better than Clinton removing himself from the pool and then putting himself back in. I'm not saying that the system in the sixties was fair, but if you could get a legal deferment, why wouldn't you?
