I suspect the book may have been written by someone who didn't vote for Obama. It's funny, in a light hearted way. If you're the kind of person who did vote for Obama and takes yourself very seriously you probably won't find it very funny.
The only caveat is that it is hard to call something this short a "book." It's more like the length of an article in The Scientific American magazine and you can be done with it in 30 minutes.
If you are looking for a scholarly critique of the current President, you'll be better served somewhere else. This is, instead, commendable satire directed at Barack Obama that turns the hagiographic hype surrounding him on its head. Sadly, there is just too little in these 26 pages for me to select more than 3 stars. What Fleming is able to do within those 26 pages is definitely well done. It's just not enough.
This book is short and sweet making for a quick and delightful read.
Fleming attacks Obama front, back, top and bottom with such good cheer. This is not a vicious take-down of the President. Instead, it's something better -- with its wit, good cheer, and brevity, Fleming's book perfectly applies three Alinsky's tactics against Alinsky's most successful disciple:
"Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."
"A good tactic is one your people enjoy."
"A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time...."
It is a short book. It is more of a long essay and is well-suited to the e-book format.
