Easy to read and very interesting.

Stein is a funny, clever guy ... and very, very smart. He's worked in academia, politics, government, and Hollywood, and relates some great tales from "behind the curtain."

Stein doesn't sell bullshit - he's very open and honest in this book and whether your ideology and his are similar or not, I think this book has something for everyone.
