Hmm. This book is good. Solid.

Not amazing, but solid.

You can tell it was written during the GW Bush administration by folks who were not fans.

Some really good nugets in here about the power of "self justification" and cognitive dissonance.

A bit repetitive. Needed a bit more aggressive editing.

But I'm still glad to know its material.
