    In their second book on our current White House occupant, Ivins and Dubose take the wire brush to the Bush presidency and show how he has applied the same flawed strategies he used in governing Texas to running the largest superpower in the world.

    Overall

    This is an informative, fascinating and entertaining book from a woman with a warm heart and a razor sharp edge. There is a lot of information in this book but I particularly liked her commentary on the current distribution of wealth in America and how it has changed over the last 40 years. To illustrate she profiles real people - one of the highest earners in the country and one of the lowest earners and describes the impact that recent legislation has had on each of them. She quotes her sources (so you can double check her facts if you like) and manages to say everything in plain language. Parents will be interested in her description of how the Texas education plan has gone national. WARNING: This part needs to be heard by everyone who doesn't already know what's been happening in Texas since it's not good news. I'm a 5th generation Texan and our dropout rate is a national shame that we do not need to share. So if you like Molly Ivins you will love this book. Even if you don't agree with her interpretation of the facts and statistics it's fascinating and sometimes disturbing information presented in a wonderful voice. Here is information we should all be thinking about and considering how it will affect us as individuals and as a nation.
