I have always had an extreme interest in politics and government, which is why this book was interesting to me. Although I had to read it for a class of mine, I am very happy I did. I was able to learn a lot about previous politicians as well as their debates with candidates of theirs. This book went behind the scenes of debates with Jim Lehrer, adding to the detail and interest of the book. I not only was able to learn a lot about something I was interested in, but I was able to discuss the debates with family members with an interest in the topics I read as well. I was confused at times between what was happening in the plot, but I was able to understand everything by talking to my dad about the debates, as well as re-reading certain sections or lines. This book is recommended to anyone who enjoys politics, government, politician backgrounds, and contrasting ideas.
