The Political Bible is a book I am proud to have on my bookshelves. Here are some tidbits to tantalize you.

What did George Smathers deny saying? I'd have been delighted to have been given credit. P. 192.

Which Presidential Candidate appeared on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In? Which one ducked the opportunity? Who won? Who lost? P. 126

Who holds the record for seeking the Republican Presidential Nomination? P. 106.

What Governor issued no pardons during his four year term in office? P.251

If I could send this book back to me when I was in Junior and Senior High School, the classes in history, geography, civics, political theory, and even English language would have become interesting. Real people, sometimes with photos, have been picked to remind us that they were also a part of the history of our country. Mr. Rubino has taken the dried beef jerky we were fed in school and replaced it with a filet mignon, great side dishes, and added several courses to turn that beef jerky into a banquet. He is a chef of history, politics, and humor.

I recently picked up a copy of this book and i have to say, it's quite a fun read. SInce i've made the purchase, i've had the book on my coffee table and everyone who's picked it up has been unable to put it down.

This is a great book to leave out for your guests and a great conversation starter. Very fun and very interesting.

There are many interesting facts in this book but a little fact-checking would have been in order. A few errors I have found include the 'fact' that Barack Obama was named Barry Sorento when he was young. It should have read that Obama was named Soetoro, not Sorento.
Also the book states that Obama wrote 'Dreams of my Fathers', when the actual title is 'Dreams from my Father'. Also Harry S Truman is continuously mis-written as Harry S. Truman. Truman had no middle name, only an 'S' so therefore a period after the S in unnecessary.

I generally dislike politics pretty severely, and politicians are even worse. However, aside from the fact that I can't figure out why politicians are more worthy of a book than are janitors or burger-flippers, this book is fascinating. It gives ample opportunities to see that politicians, even the venerated "founding fathers", were flawed people unworthy of worship, but not too different from you or me. And they all had their share of quirks.

I like the fact that the book is a compilation of rather short entries that give a specific, and pretty thoroughly researched, snippets. You can pick the book up for just a few minutes, or you can sit and let yourself be absorbed into the many interesting details and trivia about people and events. I think you may have a hard time putting it down once you start reading. I know I did.

This book has kept me engaged from the moment I started flipping through it. I find myself reading and re-reading these fascinating facts that have been beautifully compiled and composed in this "bible." These intriguing facts about politics gives me the historical and political context to so many important events in the United States and even abroad. The facts about our polical leaders are absolutely stimulating and make me feel like I have fantastic insight into their personal experiences. I have already started referencing some of these facts in conversations with friends and co-workers, everyone is curious how I learned these things!
