I listen to audiobooks while I and my dogs ramble for an hour or so every afternoon. This year has been blessed by a number of great games as the season closes. I purchased this book as a wamup to the evening of playoff baseball. John Updike's essay on Ted Williams last at bat is a real gem; the real treat is every poem and essay is flawlessly executed by the readers and the content is even better. Bart Giamatti reading the closing essay was perfect. Listen to this book....
The narrative was great sport; there was enough catty tidbits about most of the characters who wish to lead us to remind one not to take any politician very seriously. The delicious irony of this book is the adoration that was poured on Obama and his immediate circle. Unfortunately Obama and his administration have not been able to live up to the great expectations. The author's adoration of Obama kept the juicy details of the Annointed One's faults and foibles out of the book. The Edwards reporting is priceless.
I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys political dirt. The most interesting tidbits will be found when an Obama insider goes rogue.
