When I was just starting to get political I picked this book up randomly at a Barnes after a huge fight with my republican father.

It's excellent. I learned so much from it. It's incredibly clear, informative, and well-written.

I just got sick of reading this - and I really had no reason to keep going. Bush did lie; but so does every politician, really.
