Amazingly fun. Hard to believe a subject like the Puritans could be this interesting or this funny. Ms. Vowell is a national treasure.
One of the best books dealing with the financial meltdown. If this book doesn't shake you up, nothing will. The only reason these crooks haven't been indicted is because once you started arresting people you wouldn't know when to stop. This is a perfect illustration of Obama's dilemma, keep your friends close and keep your enemies closer.
Well done. It's amazing how corrupt and morally bankrupt Nixon was. How many soldiers and innocent civilians died waiting for Nixon's "secret plan" to end the war? As far as Watergate, anyone who says "every politician does the same" should read this book. Nixon takes paranoia, corruption, and just plain evil to new dimensions.
Wolfe does an excellent job capturing the mood of the campaign, from unrestrained optimism to crushing doubt. This election will become transformitive in American history once we have time to gain a better perspective. The only critism of this excellent book is that it jumps back and forth to Iowa. It seemed like every time a turning point is reached, somehow we're back in Iowa. Overall, a tremendous book.
I kept waiting for the book to get better but I can't take any more. No new material, just Buglosi's inflated ego. Bad doesn't do justice to just how wretched this book is.
I couldn't stop listening. As much as I enjoyed it I was saddened to realize that this is only the tip of the iceberg in corruption in both the corporate and political culture. Very disturbing but just like a car wreck, you can't help but to gawk.
