An interesting though more or less difficult read. I was amazed at the intricacy of polling that was brought to bear, being Morris's claim to fame while he constantly wallowed in self-aggrandizement. It was difficult for me to understand as I was not intimate with all the nooks and crannies of government staffing and departments and, further, the behind the scenes power plays, ego manipulations, and petty bickering that was described.
Morris is no doubt a genius at his chosen work "triangulation"
Self aggrandising in an attempt to compensate for his tremendous public scandal.
The author is totally, completely repugnant, but I can't lie, it's a fantastic read. Just don't drink the Kool-aid.
