The first couple of chapters go into great detail on the historical psychodrama of the Bush family over the past several generations; I found that part rather uninteresting, and can be skimmed to get the idea without missing much. The following sections on Cheney, Rove, and Dubya himself, give a good picture of how everything fell into place as it did.

I'm about halfway through - the first couple of (background) chapters are a bit dull, but the rest give a good explanation of how Rove and Cheney managed to wreak their havoc. You might like this one, as it focuses on how their hubris eventually blew up in their faces. Vince Bugliosi's book on impeachment ... there's depressing!
