Good documentary. The writer did a good research job. A good hearing/reading for those who are still puzzled by the roots of the Iraq invasion. Excellent narration.
This book is a very detailed description of the plan to invade Iraq. I did not hear (or read) "Bush At War" so I don't know what he said before and perhaps did not want to repeat. I could not finish this book; I started finding it too dry. It needs the author to analyze, interpret and place in context all the information he reports.
NOT what it was hyped as. This is Bush At War, part Deux. No surprises, nothing I didn't hear on the news or the many interviews that Woodward gave.
If you haven't paid attention to the news or want to hear a lot of BS about what a great leader *Bush thinks he is*, listen to this one, otherwise skip this one.
ZERO Stars. I kept waiting for the pay off, much like the WMDs themselves, but it isn't there.
AGAINST ALL ENEMIES was 1,000 times better.
Woodward does a very good job of putting many stories together from the start of the Bush administration to the start of the Iraqi war. In many ways, this book is very much like Suskind's The Price of Loyalty, which centers on O'Neill's perspective. Plan of Attack includes many perspectives, and they really reinforce what O'Neill observed about Bush and the other participants. What Woodward has captured in this book is a much more complete picture of who Bush is, and I have to say it is a very scary profile. While many have commented that the book does not do enough analysis of what is reported, I couldn't disagree more. The analysis is right there, in the facts that are reported.
Woodward does it again. Excellent book. Shows the great president George W really is: Hard decisions and focus.
How a great President overcame a do-nothing president If only Bob Woodward had gone on the talk shows and talked on what he actually said in the book. This book shows an in charge President bending over backwards to give the enemy the benefit of the doubt.
A great read.
Perhaps if Kerry can read this he will support our President!!
