Sometimes the best thing a partisan can do is just start spewing the truth. Gore's ideals are indeed just that; he didn't achieve them in his vice-presidency as often as he'd have liked, but after reading this book, I wish that Gore had been the frontman instead of Clinton.
That said, how does someone who has every right to be bitter get away with attacking the candidate that beat him? The bludgeoning hammer of truth and fact. These aren't all partisan shots; these are fundamental challenges to philosophy that deserve to be aired. Gore generally stays above the fray, though not always, and points out the evidential flaws that have existed in the Bush administration from Day 1, and lays them out to the jury of the citizens.
Not only does he get away with it; he nails it.
To be succinct, Freak isn't about the material presented. It's about allowing methodology to drive results, and to allow data to support theories on their own, no matter how unconventional. Freak talks about all the stuff you read on the jacket cover; race, real estate, etc., but in the end, the beauty of the book is that it makes you reexamine the way you think.
After your read, the next big problem you approach will likely be with a more jaded eye, and will require that what you think you know is supported by the data you now require.
A touch slow at times, and fancies tangents a little more than needed, this will most definitely make a drive into work more entertaining. When you get to work, well, weild your new powers with caution.
