The behind-the-scenes feeling that I hard while listening was different than other political books I have read.
Theodore White's book on JFK would be the closest because of an insider's look at political intrigue.
John McCain's complete ignorance of the what makes leader's great.
Extraordinary look at several campaign's efforts to win office
Great review of all the campaigns' efforts to win. Current movie only relates the story of how and why McCain lost. Bad judgment appears to be the downfall of many a man.
These influential men of the 20th century have and had tremendous influence on one another. I have always held Richard Nixon in low regard and I certainly feel justified in maintaining that opinion after reading this book. His attempted to maintain his position as president and ex-president without regard to the safety of the citizens of the U.S. Other members of the presidents' club have acquited themselves with honor and dignity. These men, with differing beliefs, can work together to advance the nation's welfare. Too bad our current congress cannot adopt this same attitude.
Yes. Good story and interesting characters.
Of course, it has to be Catniss
In most places the narration was excellent. Occasionally it was not excellent
I think the idea of a one percent society is very appropriate at this time. I doubt the author had that in mind when writing but often an author reflects the time they live in.
Very readable account of an alpha male who thought he could make a difference for our country. Pat Tillman got in so deep before he realized that our military leaders might have ideals that differed from his own. He paid the ultimate price before he had the wisdom to truly understand the nature of our military leaders.
Excellent book with lots to think about. However, I often thought while reading that he is not considering the influence of personal motivation which may also be effecting individual's success
