I am very sympathetic to the material, but all the sections after the first bogged down in an overload of micro-detail. And it's not even economics micro-detail but just so many names and schemes.

Still, it's interesting to see the same old crap playing out in 1809 and 1909 that we see happening in 2009. Some of Hoover's quotes in the book sound just like the stuff I'm hearing out of Obama and his team today.
