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. He knows how to handle his material so that he doesn't get out of hand with his obvious anger and dissatisfaction with W. No mean feat, I can assure you, If you haven't already had the pleasure of getting red-faced mad with our POTUS. And I know you have....

Proves beyond all doubt (if anyone still had any) that G W Bush lies extensively, cynically, deliberately, and repeatedly.

I thought this book did a good job at exposing the past administration. I hope what Mr. Corn says does not fall and deaf ears, and this does not happen again.
Barbara Brien
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.
