5.0 out of 5 stars Bi-partisan, Informative, Mud-slinging FUN, October 24, 2006
This review is from: White House Confidential: Revised and Expanded Edition (Paperback)
Do you think the political scene is bad today? Or do you think it's just fine and people are making something out of nothing. Get a little perspective here. I received this book as a gift from a family member whose views are often at the opposite end of the political spectrum from mine. I opened it with equal curiosity and reservation. Within two minutes my reservations were gone. The authors quickly reveal with glee facts, possible fictions (so noted), and rumors we have forgotten, overlooked or never heard of. They go on to uncover more lies, secrets and hedges than all the country's special commissions combined - and in far fewer pages. Although they don't start at the beginning, they do cover the beginning, the very beginning, such as who the several President's prior to George Washington were and they goon to tales about the current inhabitant of the White House, in their uniquely round-about direct way. Once I started reading I couldn't stop. Does it make the current political climate any more acceptable? Well, not really, but it will take your mind off it for a while, give you a different perspective, undoubtedly teach you a number of things you never imagined and it'll be fun. Well written, never boring. No dust on this one.
