Recommended for: political junkies, Hunter S. Thompson fans
Read in October, 2007

Matt Taibbi is the best and funniest political writer working today. This book is a collection of work that had previously been published in The Nation, NY Press, and Rolling Stone, and it is consistently hilarious and insightful. There are a few fiction stories that are not all that great, but all of the reporting, particularly the campaign reporting, is laugh-out-loud funny and spot on.
