Format: Paperback
This is the only reporter, besides Michael Moore, who ever even mentioned the fact that President Bush couldn't get out of his car at the 2001 Presidential inauguration, because there were too many protestors lining the entire parade route. This little book is like a classic pamphlet from colonial times, telling the story the mainstream wouldn't tell -- because they used a staged photo, as this book documents! You didn't hear about this book because it also documents how and why the media was also the target of protests that day in Washington. But this one really tells it like it is. It's also amazingly well written. Well worth it.

I worked with this author before in his role as multi-media producer in the edutainment industry in Pittsburgh, PA. He is a very talented writer and an insightful person. It makes me glad to see his work being published and receiving national noteriety here.
This is a well-researched book on an important topic that our corporate news media purposely ignored. It is crucial to telling the story of this Presidency. I recommend Dennis Johnson's book.

Format: Paperback
This book is a knockoutt, telling the real story of dissent in America -- the administration is suppressing it, and the mainstream press isn't reporting it. Not only a revealing book, but an interesting one -- the story of the 2000 inaugural protests is fascinating, full of odd characters and military occupations and wild dissent and even great good humor. And you have to admire the author's bravery -- he obviously didn't care if the New York Times gave him a good review!

I was there. I remember after all these years the scary feeling that I was in a police state where a group of old men could appoint our president; we could no longer elect him/her. My American flag was taken from me as I stood in that icy rain by an armed uniformed thug, who illogically said, "You see, you could attack the president with the staff of this flag." That would have been wonderful: to have a 68 year old woman shot by Secret Service men as she threatingly attacks Bush's limo with her American flag lowered and used as a spear. Would have made a statement to the world. I saw riot police beat several people who were peacefully protesting the theft of the presidency. If we had known then that this same thug/frat boy would murder 4,400 American G.I.s in his thirst for oil and to raise his sense of his own personal impotency, I might have made that suicidal gesture. And saved our country in the process. None of this was reported by Sanger or Bruni (now a restaurant reviewer) in the New York Times the next day. And the photo of him walking beside the limo was done in the presence of his invited guests to the inaugural, not in front of us, we the people screaming "Shame, shame" on that icy day.

I was interested in this topic after seeing the author on C-Span. I purchased the book and finished it in about 45 minutes. It really is a long article disguised as a book. Big type, small booklet format, etc. If it had been printed as a book, I doubt it would exeed 50 pages. I somehow fely short-changed.

The writing was OK, but styled more like a newspaper article.

I suggest you save the money and try to catch the author again on C-Span
