1) It is accessible. Political junkies will find Wright's take fascinating, but you do not have to be a political junkie to benefit from the discussion. All it takes is an interest in America's recent political history, particularly the 2012 election.
2) WTF is a model of clear and lively prose. Not once did I pause at the end of a sentence or paragraph or chapter and think, "What did he just say?" Not once did I scan impatiently through a page. Wright writes with passion, conviction, and humor. He uses wit like a fencer who tags opponents at will.
3) The book lays out where the GOP has gone wrong over the last twenty years and what we need to do to get the Party and our country back before it's too late.
The GOP Establishment, embodied in Rove, is the main target of Wright's ire, and for good reason: if Rove is indeed the "Architect," then he and his sycophants deserve the lion's portion of the blame for the position the GOP finds itself in today. Reid is still Majority Leader, ObamaCare is the law of the land, and against all odds, Obama won reelection.
But Wright also criticizes Bush 43 for his failure to defend himself, his party, and his presidency; John Roberts for his bizarre reasoning on ObamaCare; GOP candidates who took hatchets to each other (to the delight of Obama); and assorted pundits and observers (even Will and Krauthammer) who inexplicably missed the obvious about what was really going on.
With an insider's perspective, Wright deconstructs the GOP's farcical primary season and explains how Romney's abysmal campaign guaranteed the reelection of a failed president.Read more ›

I was hoping for inspiration and a "call to arms" for revival for the GOP's relevancy, instead I thought it leaned toward bashing and blaming. Read morePublished on January 21, 2014 by DeeJay Dude
This was just... rather awful. Save your money.
As books go, this was just a rather bad pile of word-jumble.
