I've very much enjoyed Alan Alda as a actor. Not so much as a writer. There's nothing bad about his writing in the technical sense, but his stories are mostly pretty dry. I guess I expected something more dynamic, based on his screen persona.

One great quote from the book:

"Name recognition is so powerful that every few years an election is won by someone whose name is well-known, but who at the time is actually dead. Which isn't all that bad, because the dead ones do less damage than the live ones."
