Superb journalism; mandatory reading,
This review is from: Dick: The Man Who Is President (Hardcover)
I received my copy of Dick on Sept 7 and read it in two hours. I could not put it down. It is a terrific read, and is filled with eye-opening, even eye-popping, material about Vice-President Dick Cheney. Nichols's case that Cheney runs the government and that he is not to be trusted is convincing. He provides evidence to convict. There are scores of books out to fill the appetite of people alarmed by the Bush-Cheney administration, and many of them are quite good. But I have seen nothing as original and as important at Dick. It is an astonishing indictment of our news media that so much elementary information about the VP has been unknown prior to the publication of this book. No matter what one's politics may be, no one who reads Dick will ever view this administration the same again.
John Nichols is one of the finest journalists of our times, and this book will only cement his reputation.

Given that you are Robert W. McChesney (as a quick google search shows) and a close friend and collaborator with Nichols, didn't you think it important to mention that fact?
