it was amazing

Full disclosure, I'm friends with the author. But I think I can be objective when I say that "All The Truth is Out" is both a tremendous example of dogged, thoughtful reporting and an amazingly trenchant analysis of the degeneration of political coverage in the wake of the Gary Hart scandal. Matt's indictment of the the way our national election coverage has devolved into the realm of infotainment is downright stinging -- he's in a unique position to determine that this particular emperor has no clothes, and he backs up that determination brilliantly. The book also rescues Gary Hart from his seemingly undeserved status as perpetual punchline; you'll definitely not look at him the same way again.
