it was ok
Read in April, 2008

My primary complaints about this book are its flat characters and gossip-column-plot that fast-forwards to "the action" but feels disjointed. The events and motives seemed likely enough, but I never felt I knew the characters well enough to care.

I picked this up at the library one day when I was feeling like my knowledge of American political history was lacking. I haven't given up on Gore for his ability to tell that story, but I'll use a little more caution next time.
