Read in January, 2007

This is an extremely good history of the intrigues and issues surrounding the bush administration's decision to invade Iraq. It's well written, meticulously researched, and it manages for the most part to characterize without editorializing.

The book's biggest problem is not really Woodward's fault: people who closely follow the news probably know much of its subject material already. There's MUCH more detail and specifics on the factions and rivalries within the Bush administration than I've found from other investigative journalists. But the information in Woodward's later Plan of Attack was less familiar to me, even as in most other senses I consider this the superior book.
