What a tragic story. I enjoyed the first half of the book.....but there seemed to be a huge chunk missing between his miserable childhood and working in the whitehouse, married with children. It just seemed like a huge and important hole in the story. I questioned the author's disdain for teachers...ESP. Sine education was the only good thing that happen to/for him. It's not like the nuns in the catholic school treated him so well. The author is surely biased when it comes toteacher's unions.

I have a feeling that the author, although over coming tremendous odds, is a very fragiile character.
