As a consumer who reads books about people who might lead my country, I take the time to do some research. So, what do I consider the very first thing to look for before I take someone elses word? A strong bibliography that is full of primary sources. For every claim in a book, there better be a listed source if I am expected to believe what they have to say about someone... whether it is good or bad. In this regard, the authors have not let us consumers down. This work is extensively endnoted to let us confirm the claims made by the authors. Next time you are browsing in a book store, take a minute to go to the back of all those books on Clinton, Gore, Bush or whomever. You'll be surprised how few have decent sources listed. In many cases no primary sources are even listed. In the case of Gore, I was hard pressed to find a book that had the kind of bibliography we should all demand before taking someone elses word on someones character.
In short, its a book worth your time. The truth is that in some cases the authors interpret information in the least flattering way for Gore. But you will not be able to question where they got the information from, its all clearly listed for you to check out yourself.
Many had imagined Gore to be the better half of the Clinton/Gore team. He certainly projected that wholesome image that Clinton could never pull off. However, this book looks beneath his veneer of respectability and exposes his shady land dealing and utter hypocrisy when it comes to the environment.
As it says in the forward, Bossie and Brown strive to be as accurate as is humanly possible. I am greatful to these two men for giving a history of Gore's life for me, as I knew little of his past.
Get yourself a copy of this book, it is very informative.
Bottom line: I would recommend this book not so much for the criticisms it makes but for the unflinching analysis it gives of a man who might be the next president.
If you want to have facts about Al Gore for political discussions this fall this is the book for you.
