's review

it was amazing

I suggest you read the afterword FIRST.

I requested this book back in December 2015 and my library finally bought it.

This was a revelation, in that so much of the mire our political system is currently in was gathered a century ago if not earlier.

I picked it up after seeing it referenced in another history book (though it was so long ago I have no idea which one). I'm going to buy it and underline the good parts.

It is very dense and academic, which is why it took me nearly a month to finish it as opposed to my usual 3-4 days to complete a book.

Recommended only for serious history and/or political science geeks.

BMR, LCSW It was hard to get into, then I read the afterword and it was much easier.

My trick for books that don't interest me right away, I turn to the end. If I want to know what happens between the beginning and the ending, I'll then read it all. Otherwise, I ditch it. ;)
