I was hoping for so much more in this book. The first couple chapters about campaigning (and the wins and losses that go with it) were interesting and readable. But the part I was really looking forward to - the chapters on the legislative process - were horribly dry and unorganized. Still, Price picked it up again towards the end when he talked about his district work. Readable first-person accounts of Congress are needed - still.
