Typical corrupt politician with a few sparks of sanity thrown in. Would never get my support for president. He obviously doesn't comprehend the 2nd amendment very well.

Book was very interesting, much of what have heard over the years as have listened to the reporter, Bob Ingle over the radio. Did enjoy learning about Chris Christie's earlier childhood and his life growing up. Lots of details in the book and a good reference book if certain information was needed on his life. I am more into fiction books at the moment so found it harder to take all the details.

I found this a very interesting book. I've always enjoyed the entertainment value of people like our Governor. Examining his history as a US Attoney and his relationships with colleagues and family made for a quick read. It was sometimes diffecult keeping track of the various people who played a role in his political career but always interesting.

Interesting book about a very interesting guy. Chris Christie definitely tells it like it is in every situation that he is in....maybe more politicians should be as honest as he is each day.

It was very interesting in the beginning and end but like a lot of biographies the middle didn't hold my attention.
