I honestly write these reviews in a spirit of sharing and helpfulness. I have no idea why I always end up sounding so snotty...

    Like a nonfiction version of All the King's Men, The Politician offers a truly disturbing, even shocking, perspective on the risks taken and tactics employed by a man determined to rule the most powerful nation on earth.

    Overall

    Although the supposed subject of this book is John Edwards, it is essentially an autobiography or its author - Andrew Young. I found it fascinating. Not because Mr. Young is exceptionable, but rather, because he's like so many others who go unseen and unnoticed in the games of ambition and power taking place in our world. I found myself listening to the author's self-exposure the way a man might guiltily leer at a skantily clad woman on the street: the sight of all that unaccustomed nakedness is all the more riveting when you can't decide how intentional it is. Did Mr. Young mean to expose himself so completley, or did he honestly believe he was writing about someone else? Either way, it's hard to look away.
