I purchased this book because I love politics and wasn't sure who to vote for in 2008. The author, Bill Sammon, interviewed the candidates, read the books the candidates wrote, and examined their past voting records to collect the information for this book. I was impressed with the amount of new information I learned about all of the candidates. Bill Sammon truly gives you the positives and negatives of each candidate. I could not find a bias toward a certain party nor candidate. Before reading this book, I was contemplating between two candidates, and this book confirmed my decision on those two candidates. The only negative I see about this book is that he left some of the second-tier candidates out of the book (Ex. Ron Paul.) It would have been helpful to have background information on ALL of the candidates. Also, there is less material on some of the candidates (Bill Richardson and Mike Huckabee). The book is easy to read and understand. I truly feel that it would help anyone make a more educated decision in 2008. I hope the author writes an expanded version on the two nominees and third party candidates. I also hope he will continue writing these books for future elections. May the best man/woman win in 2008...thank you Bill Sammon!

Meet the Next President by Bill Sammon is a brief guide to the candidates with biographies and stands on major issues. The book covers Mitt Romney, John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Fred Thompson, Bill Richardson, and John Edwards in detail. I was a little disappointed in the coverage; this was not the book I expected. Maybe it's asking too much in this age where every reporter has a bias, but I was hoping for objective, thorough coverage of each candidate. I didn't really notice the bias until reading the bio of Hillary. Then I flipped to the back flap and noticed that Sammon works for FoxNews. Ok, that explains it. While I'm no fan of Hillary's, his bio seemed determined to focus on the most negative aspects of her life. Romney's flip-flopping is accentuated, as is Hillary's shrillness, Obama's unusual upbringing, and Edward's legal antics. That said, I did learn a great deal about each candidate profiled, but I feel that perhaps Sammon released his book too soon. Richardson is already out of the race, Thompson has yet to show, and "dark horse" Mike Huckabee only merits 3 pages. This book is a good start to the research needed to make the right choice in the voting booth, but it's too incomplete and biased to give the whole story.

This has got to be one of the most poorly written, biased, partisan, works I've ever read. Look Mr. Sammon, if you're going to write a synopsis on political issues in an informative way, at least be accurate and thorough in your analysis. The Mitt Romney chapter looked promising and appeared to be non-biased. But as soon as I've read the following chapters (particularly Sen. Clinton's chapter), the right-wing biased became too clear. But that's not the worse. The lazy analysis of all of the candidates on the issues, the lack of issues, and the lack of candidtates covered made this a pitiful book.

According to the book all of the Democrats are in favor of nationalized universal health care where as all of the Republicans are against it. Question Mr. Sammon, what exactly is nationalized universal healpth care. Is it single payer health-care system proposed by Truman in 1950? Is it "Hillary-Care" universal mandate that Clinton proposed in 1993? If both classify as univerval health care, what's the difference between "Hillary-Care" and Romney's "mandatory health insurance"? Wouldn't Romney be in favor of universal health care if universal mandate is understood to be part of definition of universal health care? Another thing, Sen. Obama isn't in favor of universal health care. The only thing he's going to do is apply the "Romney-Clinton" care to minors and leave the adults' plan the way it is. As for immigration Mr. Sammon, you mention guess workers for some, but not all of the candidates. You mention amnesty for some, not all. You also border patrol for some, not all. Why variate from candidate to candidate?

Where are the issues? On taxes their is only mention of Bush's tax plan.
