You might find this e-book informative if you never read newspapers or news magazines and never watch political commentary on television. But if you are already reasonably well-informed, you will find little here that is new or news. What little that is new is more in the realm of gossip than news. For example, we learn that Haley Barbour decided not to run when, after he used his own team to vet himself, he found out that there is a lot of negative information on him that would be readily available to his opponents. (If you don't know who Haley Barbour is, then this might be the right book for you.) We learn that Newt Gingrich's wife Callista ran interference for him, micro-managed his campaign and helped derail it in its early stages (it has since revived and surged). We are presented with Rick Perry's complete daily schedule, if anyone is interested. But I think the late Theodore H. White would turn over in his grave at what passes today as serious political analysis. The is supposed to be the first in a series of four e-books on the 2012 campaign. I won't be holding my breath waiting for the next three.
